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

Spring tide adventurers

 

The Isles of Scilly include five, small inhabited islands, four of which once formed a single larger island (the exception was St Agnes).  But around 3000 years ago rising sea levels divided the land and created the present formation.

The channel between Tresco and Bryher is normally very busy with boats ferrying tourists and residents between islands as well as providing anchorage for visiting yachts.  But four or five times a year, for a short while on three or four consecutive days, the sea bed is exposed.  It is the time of the Spring tides  –  a time when it is possible to walk between Tresco and Bryher and, indeed, between Tresco and St Martin’s.  For those whose holiday happens to coincide with a Spring tide the walk is often high on their ‘things I must do’ list.
