This is another traditional seaside town on the North Norfolk coast about 15 miles west of Sheringham. A small fishing port, now also catering to the tourist, which has lost none of it's original character having quaint narrow streets and alleys.

The Quay, seen here, is about a mile from the sea at the end of an L-shaped inlet.
