The Deep History Coast

Norfolk has 100 miles of coastline. We can all enjoy the glorious beaches with their sandy cliffs but how many of us stop and think about the fascinating stories those beaches and cliffs can tell?

What is the Deep History Coast? North Norfolk’s Deep History Coast is the 22-mile stretch between Weybourne and Cart Gap. It has sandy beaches, rock pools, chalk banks, miles of flint stones and is edged by cliffs. Full of fossils and flints and mammoth bones, the beaches and cliffs can take you back to a time when Sheringham was under sheets of ice.

Local Geologist, Martin Warren, will take you on a journey in time along the Deep History Coast. You can find out about fossils, flints and the amazing Chalk reef.
