Roman Camp Caravan Park, West Runton, north Norfolk

Along the Norfolk coast, eastwards

Eastwards from the Roman Camp Caravan Park follow the B1159 all the way from Cromer where you take the Overstrand turn.

The RAF has a radar dome at Trimmingham next to the road. Mundesley has perhaps the smallest museum in Britain, Mundesley Maritime Museum, housed in the former Coastguard Lookout on the seafront. Exhibits include Lifeboats, The Railway, and World War 2 information relating to the area. On the southern side of the village is Stow Mill, a windmill that can be viewed.

At Happisburgh (pronounced Haisborough) you will see the red and white painted lighthouse, now under private care. Waxham has a magnificent restored thatched barn and worth a stop to photograph and, if open, to view.

Next along is Horsey the village where the National Trust look after Horsey Windpump. This is a restored drainage windpump from the top of which you have magnificent views over Horsey Mere, one of the Norfolk Broads. Don’t forget to take your camera and binoculars. Continuing along the B1159 the villages of Winterton and Hemsby are passed through. If you stop though you will have sand dunes and clean sandy beaches to explore.
