Situated between Wells-next-the-sea and Sheringham, Blakeney is an idyllic coastal village noted in the Domesday Book as one of a small number of ports around the estuary of the River Glaven. Under the care of the National Trust, the Point is a nature reserve and sanctuary for migratory birds. Its marshes and grassy dunes attract birdwatchers from afar.
Blakeney's Church of St Nicholas was built in the 13th century and its fine tower is one's first sight of Blakeney when approaching from any direction.
During the summer months Blakeney becomes very popular with holidaymakers and various water sports are organised. Marine stores cater for the sailing fraternity who flock to the area to enjoy its picturesque setting. With its Georgian frontages, cobblestone fishermen's cottages and alleyways that lead into pretty courtyards, Blakeney is an interesting village to explore on foot.
Blakeney Point is located close to the North Norfolk villages of Blakeney, Morston and Cley-next-the-Sea and is a beautiful and idyllic part of the county. It is home to England’s largest Grey Seal colony and an array of summer breeding birds and is popular with birdwatchers and nature lovers.
