SITUATION
Wells-next-the-Sea is an attractive Georgian coastal town with good access to the market towns of Fakenham, King's Lynn, Holt and Norwich.

The Quay is still the hub of the town with the familiar sight of "gillying" - fishing for shore crabs and the resident Dutch sailing ketch Albatros alongside the small fishing fleet and growing number of leisure craft. The beach, a mile along the beach road and accessible via the sea wall walk, car or the small railway, boasts beautiful sands, dunes and colourful beach huts fringing the pinewoods.
