...with Nor­folk Ram­blers in Sher­ing­ham

ACoast­watch op­er­ates from the Old Coast­guard Look­out (the watch tower) on Skeld­ing Hill be­tween Sher­ing­ham Golf Club and the sea and is on the edge of the cliff. This lo­ca­tion, 170 feet above sea level, gives us a com­mand­ing view ex­tend­ing (weather per­mit­ting) over 14 miles out to sea. Our van­tage point on the North Nor­folk coast looks over the Wash Basin and in­cludes the Sher­ing­ham Shoal be­yond which a large wind farm has been built.

We look due north with no land be­tween us and the North Pole. To the west we can see the shore line as far as Blak­eney Point which is eight miles away. To the east we can see the coast off the Run­tons and Cromer (Cromer Pier is ob­scured by Bee­ston Hill). The Ped­dars Way and the Nor­folk Coast Path pass our door, so if you are walk­ing along these paths do give us a wave when pass­ing.
