Having had a lovely, freshly-cooked breakfast at our B&B, Mr M and I decided to get on the Norfolk Coastal Path and walk over to Weybourne. We’ve walked quite a few sections of the coastal path in the past, but not this one. One of the reasons for going to Weybourne was that we could get on the North Norfolk Railway back to Sheringham once we had finished walking. We stopped off at the station to make a note of train times before we set off and discovered that they had a vintage bus weekend going on as well, so we had loads of options for getting back.
The weather was beautiful again on Sunday, bright and sunny and a lot less windy than it had been the day before. The coastal path has great views as you as you leave the town, then it drops steeply downwards between a golf course and the beach.
It soon levelled out and it was an easy ramble over to Weybourne and the station, which has been restored in the style of the late 1900s and is just like a film set, complete with piles of monogrammed luggage, old bicycles and Midland and Great Northern Joint Railway tan and cream paint.
The final stop on our tour of Norfolk was Wells-next the-sea. I think the beach at Wells is my favourite. It’s a huge expanse of sand and you can walk along it for miles. We parked at the beach and were really impressed by the newly renovated refreshment hut and its Cornish pasties. Then we set out along the sand in front of the beach huts for a walk. The beach was full of families and sunbathers, but a quick walk took us out onto a much more secluded area. I love feeling as if you are the only people on the beach. This time it was an easy walk out but much harder-going walking into the wind on the way back.
We were pretty exhausted by the end of our walk and duly headed for home feeling like we’d squeezed as much as we possibly could out of our weekend.All photos by Mr. M
