Hunstanton to Burnham Deepdale

The first day along the Norfolk Coast Path backtracks to Holme next the Sea and continues along the stunning dunes and marshes to Burnham Deepdale.


Overcast as I set out from Hunstanton. Cromer was the original end of the trail, which has since been extended due to the England Coast Path.

Tide is well out this morning.


I Walk back past St Edmunds Chapel.


The lighthouse.

And the coastguard lookout. The sun soon came out after this photo.

Just 20 minutes later... You would never think it was on the same day!

Open beach and dunes.

Native Eryngium plants on the beach.

The end of the Peddars Way which is passed along the coastal path.

Holme Dunes nature reserve.


Lots of photo opportunities at Holme Dunes.


Make sure you have a long lens or binoculars as there is so much wildlife to see. I was lucky enough to see an Arctic Skua fly over.

Traces of WW2 Defences.

The lake at Holme Dunes.

A short detour to the Seahenge Discovery Site.


Thornham Church marking the inland stretch.

The inland stretch follows a country lane and track to head round to Brancaster.


Wild Scabious along the track. As I took this photo a bloody Horsefly bit me right on the arm! Ouch!
