About

Weybourne is a pretty village nestled below Kelling Heath. North Norfolk Railway stops at Weybourne on the line between Holt and Sheringham. Within the grounds of the 15h century church, stand the ruins of an Augustinian priory. The village has pretty cottages, shops, pub and hotel. On the outskirths of the village there is a well known landmark, a former windmill (now privately owned). Nearby is the popular Muckleburgh Collection, the largest privately-owned collection of tanks, armoured cars and other military vehicles used in wars across the globe. 

Weybourne is home to a quiet shingle beach with a backdrop of cliffs running all the way to Happisburgh, while the beach stretches east to Blakeney Point. A three-mile walk along the top of the cliffs will take you to Sheringham beach. The deep waters at Weybourne make it popular with beach anglers. The beach at Weybourne, which sits on the Deep History Coast, is where north Norfolk's low, shingly coastline rears up out of the sea with a back drop of steep-edged cliffs studded with ancient fossils and flints. It’s here where a 100-million-year-old chalk reef, the biggest in Europe, emerges under the water from the clay blanket that covers it further west.

Since the land emerged at the end of the last Ice Age the sea has been eating it away, taking fields, farms and cottages with it. At the Discovery Point in Weybourne, the app will be triggered to reveal Deep History related to that time, with augmented reality features. You will see the Cromer Forest Bed stretching for miles and as you walk, you will be on a landscape that started to form two million years ago as the bed of an ancient river.
