Weybourne derives from old English for spring or stream, and is a fishing resort situated in the Norfolk Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There are remains of an old Augustinian priory founded around 1200 AD on the site of a simpler Saxon church which are worth a look in! Since this village is a designated conservation area, there are many fine examples of Norfolk brick and flint cottages to see dating from the 17th century, through to modern replicas. The village is surrounded by well-ordered arable fields, woodland and heathland. The area is excellent for walking, enjoying the countryside and coast. There are opportunities to see wildlife, sea-fishing on Weybourne Beach and bird-watching are very popular. Enjoy good old fashioned seaside activities at Sheringham and Cromer where there are a full range of facilities. With its pier and its two museums, wide open beaches, spectacular cliffs and famous pier shows, there's lots to enjoy in Cromer so is a great place to finish your walk!
