Cley-next-the-Sea to Cromer

The final day along the coast path offers a real contrast, beginning along the shingle beach for several miles to then head over the gentle hills and clifftops to Cromer.

Cley Mill.

For those with maximum budget - its possible to stay overnight here.

Vast open marshes.

As I join the coast I get hit by the strong northerly wind.

Big crashing waves today.


More WW2 remains at Little Eye.

The remains of some kind of structure on Little Eye.

The first of many hills to come. Gramborough Hill, a whopping 32ft above sea level.

Offers great views west!

Beyond Gramborough Hill the path skirts the Muckleborough Collection - a fantastic collection of tanks and artillery.

More WW2 Remains at Weybourne. No more shingle - thank god! Very tough on the legs!

The clifftop path now begins towards Sheringham.

Weybourne Mill.

Skelding Hill in the distance and its Coast Watch Lookout.

Edging closer as I pass the Golf Course.

The view back from near Skelding Hill to the West.

Skelding Hill ahead.

The more impressive view west from Skelding Hill.

Rough seas at Sheringham.

Sheringham from the Trig Point on Beeston Bump.

Looking East you can make out the church at Cromer near the end of the trail.

West Runton church.

Cromer Pier. The end of the National Trail and a superb walk through the Norfolk Countryside and Coast.
