Blakeney Harbour

Click the picture to enlarge

Blakeney is a coastal village in North Norfolk and is situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.  The North Borfolk Coastal Path passes alongside the quay.  The harbour attracts visitors and holoday makers throughout most of the year.

In the Middle Ages the harbour was of major importance and  in the mid-nineteenth century packet ships carried cargoes to Hull and Liondon  With the increase in the size of vessels the harbour fell into decline and began to silt up.  Today it is used only by small boats and provides regular trips to the seal colonies at Blakeney Point
