More about this scene

Caption for West Runton, The Common 1925: These cliffs do not suffer as much erosion as those eastwards towards Cromer and beyond. The road from the village ends at this beach, which is known as the Gap. The area has good parking and a tea shop, where it is possible to hire beach tents; refreshments can be purchased and taken on trays directly onto the sands. If the tides are in your favour and you have the energy, it is possible to walk to Sheringham and even Cromer from here, either on the beach, or if the tide has been misjudged, on the cliff top.
