Blakeney: A small village and parish located on the north coast of Norfolk, Blakeney has a population of 789 and a history which goes back to Saxon times and beyond. Recorded as Esnuterie in the Domesday Book (1086), Blakeney was a significant seaport right up until the end of the 19th century, when the harbour silted up, making it impossible to navigate for all but small pleasure craft.

The impressive church of Saint Nicholas, dates from the 15th century, and has 2 towers, the main one reaching a height of 104 feet. The village High Street runs steeply down to the harbour, and in a side street close to the harbour you will find the 14th century Guildhall, with its early brick built vaulted ceiling.

Blakeney Harbour and Blakeney Point Nature Reserve, together with large areas of salt marshes, are now owned and administered by the National Trust, providing an important habitat for wildlife, including grey and common seals, which can be seen basking on the various sandbanks.

Blakeney can be reached via the A149, it is about 5 miles from Holt and 21 miles from Norwich.
