Wells-next-the-Sea harbour

 

 

 

Wells-next-the-Sea was once a busy port, especially in the nineteenth century.  It  boasted a fishing fleet that fished off Iceland,  imported coal for the industrial area of the north east and was a major supplier of malt to Dutch and London breweries.  A reminder of the past  is still evident in the granary, pictured in the first photograph.  The granary ceased production in 1990 and has since been converted into luxury flats. Wells is now primarily known as a seaside resort, but it still has a small fishing industry specialising in whelks, crab and lobster.
