Winterton on Sea, Norfolk
Winterton is a small – population is under 1500 – village beloved of those who seek time to stand still. It is 8 miles to the north of Great Yarmouth on the Norfolk Coast and famous for the Winterton Dunes which lie between the village and the coast and where you can see the Natterjack Toad. Seals can be observed at Duffles Pond. Efforts to stabilize the coast against the perpetual threat of sea encroachment have been made since at least the 18th Century when an enlightened progamme of marram grass planting was begun. It is, though, an ongoing threat.
