Sheringham is a delightful coastal resort located upon the northern coastline of the county of Norfolk in Eastern England, UK, it has a resident population of about seven thousand inhabitants. The parish is made up of two villages Upper Sheringham upon a hill while Lower Sheringham is the old fishing village which became a holiday resort towards the end of the 1800s. The vibrant little town of Sheringham is centred on its traditional High Street, which has a neat clock tower at one end and the beach at the other end.

Before the eighteen nineties Sheringham was a flinty community reliant on fishing, the train line found its way to Sheringham in eighteen eighty seven, and holiday homes were soon built around the original village, a number of whose houses still survive at the sea end of the High St. Sheringham still boasts a few fishing boats, head out in search of crabs and lobsters, and appreciative tourists consume their catches at a number of seafood stalls and cafes. When not on the water, they are pulled up on the beach next to the historic lifeboat station. The modern lifeboat is kept at the western end of the promenade. The towns' beach is made up of gradually sloping sand, shielded by groynes, below shingle. Swimming is superb, and lifeguards are working daily in the summer season. There are two slipways, nevertheless access has limitations and parking next to the seafront is not easy.

Lifeboat house of the Henry Ramey Upcher - geograph.org.uk - 1093649The Historic Past of Sheringham: While no doubt a settlement way before the Norman conquest, Sheringham was reported in the 1086 Domesday Book, though that would have been what is now known as Upper Sheringham, which has endured as a farming community for more than 2000 yrs. Lower Sheringham which currently makes up the modern day town, would way back then have merely been one or two fishing cottages. During the 18th century the population of both of the communities was around one hundred or so, but shortly after this time there seemed to be a boom in the fishing industry and this saw accelerated growth for Lower Sheringham as it became a blossoming village, by the mid-ninteenth century more than a hundred fishing craft were working from Sheringham seashore and the total population had risen eightfold. The principle target for the town's fishermen was the crabs and lobsters, for which this stretch of shoreline is renowned, and these produced essential earnings for the town and area.

The modern day town of Sheringham came into being following the appearance of the train line. The two villages were separated in 1901, when Lower Sheringham achieved its independence from Upper Sheringham. The tourist industry prospered as a direct result of this and the town turned into a serious holiday location, with several holiday cottages being erected and existing fishermens cottages rented out to tourists. Almost all of the tourists arrived by train from London and Cambridge.

The clock tower (which was at first a water tower) was initially erected in the eighteen sixties, the clock was added in 1901. The Parish Church of St Peters is Victorian in origin and was created with contributions from the Urchers family. A Chapel of Ease was put up in 1842, and this was used up until St Peters opened in 1897, the original chapel being used as a church hall until the 1950s.

The station is now the eastern terminal and headquarters of the North Norfolk Railway, which operates to nearby Weybourne, It has a great display of steam locomotives, classic rail carriages, and other railway relics. At Upper Sheringham, about a mile inland, Sheringham Hall lies in a fabulous park, designed by Humphry Repton, with exceptional displays of rhododendrons in early summer. The park is open to the public throughout the year, and is National Trust run.

Shingle shores and beetling cliffs extend for miles just here, walk around 1 mile east to Beeston for a ruined 13th century priory, where the adjacent common has a fantastic display of wild flowers from spring to autumn, or possibly west to Weybourne for yet another ruined priory. These beaches and cliffs, some glacial moraine from the last Ice Age, and part carried down from shorelines to the north, deliver very good rock and fossil hunting. Agate, cornelian, jet and amber show up, as well as fossil belemnites (squid like creatures) and sea urchins. Inland, the justifiably named Pretty Corner offers fine vistas of sea and heath woodland. The motto of Sheringham is Mare Ditat Pinusque Decorat, Latin for "The sea enriches and the pine adorns".
