  View of the High Street, Sheringham, Norfolk, England   Sheringham.

This is a small traditional English seaside town on the north coast of Norfolk about five miles west of Cromer and due north of Norwich. It used to be a fishing village but the arrival of the railway in the late 19th century meant that it grew into a popular seaside resort.

This picture show the top end of the High Street looking seaward.

  View of the High Street, Sheringham, Norfolk, England   Sheringham.

The lower end of the High Street showing just a glimpse of the sea through the buildings.

There is about three miles of sandy beach but only when the tide is not high which it was when we were there. The coast along here erodes very quickly indeed and there are what appeared to be newish sea defences in the form of a hefty concrete promenade which I'm sure does the job but looks anything but picturesque.

  Photograph of the North Norfolk Railway Station, Sheringham, Norfolk, England   Sheringham.

Sheringham has two railway stations. One being the terminus of the normal train service from Norwich, known as the Bittern Line, and this one, the second Sheringham Station, which is the starting point for the North Norfolk Railway (the Poppy Line). This is a steam heritage line.

The walk between the two stations must be all of 3 minutes. We travelled from here to Weybourne on the Poppy Line.

  Photograph of Weybourne, Norfolk, England   Weybourne.

Having travelled to the next station of Weybourne we walked into the village and this view of the village, with the sea beyond, was taken on the walk from the station; a distance of just under a mile along a quiet Norfolk lane.

You can see the 15th century church tower poking above the rooftops.
