I had a romanticised idea of Cromer as a late nineteenth-century seaside resort, opened up by the railway which arrived in 1877, with a direct service from Liverpool Street from 1897, stopping only at North Walsham.   The pier was opened in 1897:-

One thought on “Cromer

  1. Dear Charles, How well I remember Cromer too, having been taken there over several years on family seaside holidays when I was small. Unfortunately I was too young to appreciate the fine pier and architecture. These might have deflected my miserable thoughts from the biting Easterly wind and cold North Sea which now predominate the memories. But your photos have inspired me to revisit. Thank you,
    Best wishes, Mary
