Situated six miles from North Walsham, Walcott can be found right on the coastline. The name Walcott derives from the Celtic word Walecote, meaning village by the wood. Walcott beach has a steep, concrete ramp taking you from the road to the beach and is a popular place especially during the summer months. All Saints church sits inland, away from the village, surrounded by tightly structured fields of daffodils. All Saints was rebuilt in the early 15th century. It has a tower stair turret that is set at a diagonal to the tower. The North Sea flood in 1953 meant much of the village was lost to the sea along with neighbouring village Keswick.
