Fishing boats of North Norfolk

For many generations fishing for crab and lobster has been the way of life for the fishermen of North Norfolk.  The boats are small and  –  in places like Cromer, Sheringham and Cley next the Sea  –   are mostly moored on the beach rather than in a harbour.  Often the beaches comprise extensive banks of shingle (to prevent coastal erosion).  Each boat has its own tractor and, in some cases,  is towed to and from the sea on a cradle.
