North Norfolk


I spent a week in Cromer, north of Norwich, an old Victorian sea resort on the North Sea coast of Norfolk. The typical old architecture of this area along the coast involves brick and flint stones often making lovely patterns as in this house and long walls of flint stones running along the roadways. So unlike anything I have seen elsewhere! This house looked out over the North Sea - will show the view tomorrow.

That is a superb design created by the flint stones. the trim around the house set off the texture of the flint stones.

I've seen places like this. Are they always at the seaside?

There must be a lot of stone there. Roads, buildings, walls, etc.

This neighbourhood has so much character and I just LOVE the sea behind it.

There is so much beauty in so many parts of England. I love how the architecture and the scenery can change with each town!
