As mentioned in an earlier post, (https://lagill6.wordpress.com/2019/10/20/past-times/), there are strong echoes of past times in Blakeney. High Street is narrow and there are no pavements. It is bordered by sturdy but elegant, cobbled houses and properties, and (mostly) painted white. Shops and businesses are assimilated within the overall character of the street.
The pictures below were taken at lunchtime on the first Saturday in October. Blakeney is not a noisy place!

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
