There’s nowhere like Norfolk: Discover the Deep History Coast with Visit Norfolk

Just half an hour’s drive from The Norfolk Mead is the unique Deep History Coast - an area of beautiful unspoilt coastline stretching 16 miles from West Runton to Happisburgh via Cromer.

As well as being stunning to visit, Norfolk's Deep History Coast is of huge importance internationally. Did you know the earliest evidence of man found outside the Great Rift Valley in Africa was found in this area? 

In 2013, a team of British Museum, Natural History Museum and Queen Mary University of London scientists found 850,000-year-old human footprints. As well as the biggest woolly mammoth skeleton ever found and a 500,000 year old flint axe, there are more than 20,000 fossil finds a year!
