About Wells Next The Sea
Wells plus Holkham woods and beach are some of the best places for landscape photography in Norfolk. It is a working harbour town and popular with tourists and day trippers. Despite its name the town is no longer by the sea.
This is an area of the coast that is building up. It is contrast to the continuous eroding that takes place on the east Norfolk coast especially around the Happisburgh area.
The town is now over one mile from the sea. An embankment, a mile long was built to prevent the harbour from silting up. It provides a pleasant walk to the sea. If you do not wish to walk along the embankment there is a road running parallel to it and at the end a pay and display car park with toilets.
The beach has wide golden sands when the tide is out. Care must be taken if you cross the channels and sandbanks as the tide come in faster than you can run. Knowledge of the tides is essential and information is provided at the car park.
A 4 mile, 10.25 gauge-tracked railway takes you to Walsingham a place well known for its shrine. It is the longest railway track of this gauge in the world.The summer carnival is a very popular event. It starts and ends at The Buttlands and on carnival day there is entertainment all day. If you watch the carnival at the start near the Buttlands you can experience see it once again at the finish.
Cley is also nearby and a visit to Cley Windmill is a real treat.

Wells has a wide sandy beach with spectacular beach huts. They are always great photo opportunities and for that reason the beach is one of my favourite places to visit each year. You can see many more images of this area in my Norfolk landscape portfolio.
With miles of untouched sandy beaches the Holkham Nature Reserve stretches to Burnham Overy with rare habitats including salt marshes, sand dunes, pine woodland and beach. The reserve has diverse wildlife and is a fantastic place to go walking. At Holkham you can have lunch at the Victoria Hotel or take a snack at the Stables Café.
