What happened next?

For each of the scenarios below, imagine you are standing, barefooted, at the water’s edge.  See the wave breaking, hear the sound. feel the movement of the water against your feet.  Relax!

Past times?


Tine seems to have passed slowly in Blakeney.  The scene pictured in the previous post must have looked much the same a century ago.  To the left of the harbour photo two ‘crabbers’ are enjoying dangling their lines.  At the opposite end of the quay there is a stall selling cockles, mussels, crab and similar delicacies fresh from the sea.

But my attention was drawn particularly to the bicycle pictured above, resting against the railings skirting the quay.  Within living memory only the currency has changed!

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
