After its predecessor village Shipden was swallowed by the sea, Cromer took over as a fishing community famous for its small sweet crabs.

A quiet place where well-heeled Victorians took the air and salt water dips was transformed into a popular resort by the coming of the railway.

Its 100-year-old pier is home to the current lifeboat station, and pavilion theatre, which hosts the only remaining end-of-the-pier summer variety show.

A seafront museum tells the story of the town’s lifeboat including legendary coxswain Henry Blogg. The town also has a South American-themed zoo, and a big mid-August carnival.

A Cromer shopkeeper is undertaking a gruelling challenge to raise money for the Prostate Cancer UK charity.
