You are here
Winterton-On-Sea is a small coastal village on the Norfolk Coast. If you are looking for deserted sand dunes and windswept sandy beaches this is the place to come. The dunes stretch for miles along the coast, and there are nearby breeding seal colonies so its not unusual to sea a seal or two rolling around on the shore. The sun rises over the sea so early morning gives the best light on the dunes. There is a large offshore wind farm which makes an interesting focal point on the horizon.
The village has a pub which serves food and a couple of small shops. There is an attractive church with a tall tower, at the time of writing there was scaffodling over it but this is due to be removed in early 2014.
On the outskirts of the village is a windfarm, with a quiet road through the centre which makes it a great spot for shooting.
The windswept nature of the place makes it a good choice for winter shooting, though there are lots of photo opportunites all year round.
