More about this scene

Caption for Cromer, The Pier C1960: Cromer Pier was built in 1900 and has offered entertainment ever since. It is often advertised as being the only place in England from which one can watch the sun both rise and set over the sea. The pier was damaged during World War Two, and only reopened a few years before this photograph was taken.

Memories of Cromer

This image was shot by my great-great grandfather JJ Merrett, makes me proud to know that his work is still being sold. Even more so to know that he shot a subject we can now no longer go and see as it fell into the sea around 1913.

I have lived in the area all my life and don't recognise this hotel. It is a grand structure indeed but I cannot recall seeing it.

This picture is of Christ Church which ws built in 1867 beside the disused church of St Martin. Christ Church was later demolished and St Martin was restored.

My great grandfatherwas lighthouse keeper at Cromer - Mr Hopkins
