Thornham Harbour

Once an active small harbour, Thornham Harbour, North Norfolk, has become a mooring at the end of a muddy creek.  From the harbour to the sea is a 20 minute walk across salt marshes at low tide, although with spring tides, there is extensive flooding.  In addition to its legitimate trading purposes, in the eighteenth century the harbour became notorious for its smuggling activities  –  wool, tea, tobacco, alcohol etc.
