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.

Sunlight on the stream

 

The autumn sunlight highlighted the ripples on the shallow stream and shone through the clear water to illuminate the natural patterns beneath.

Titchwell Marsh (2)

 

There is a distinctive atmosphere about Titchwell Marsh Nature Reserve:  an almost reverential hush punctuated by the evocative call of the curlew.   There is  even, with the isolated exception, an absence of mobile phones!  Voices are mezzo piano rather than forte.  Movements are unrushed and controlled to avoid disruption or distraction.  There is a tacit acknowledgement that we are in the birds’ domain and it is a privilege to be admitted.

Regrettably, the quality of the photos is not good.  They were taken on a grey day with a handheld compact camera and most of the birds were at least 100 yards away.  But I hope they convey  something of the sense of place.
