The North Norfolk Coast

Where are we?

Docking, Bircham, Sedgeford and Stanhoe are all very close to the North West Coast of Norfolk, near to Hunstanton and King's Lynn. A large part of this area is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with fantastic scenery and a haven for walkers and bird watchers. Close by is the Royal Sandringham Estate, Blickling Hall, Houghton Hall and Holkham Hall.

Docking, Bircham and Sedgeford all have primary schools and details of these are given in the description of each village which follows. There are a number of secondary schools in the area, the nearest being Smithdon High School, Hunstanton, Tel: 01485 534541; There is also Fakenham High School & College; and a number of others in King’s Lynn.

The benefice has an interesting mix of people. This is made up of a backbone of those born in Norfolk. This has been supplemented over the years by new arrivals, some to work locally, some to retire and some second home owners. The result has been a vibrant mixture in which everyone has something to offer, with traditional country pursuits and many musical and cultural events.

North West Norfolk is a lovely place in which to live; very pretty villages, large areas of farming and small woodlands. The pace of life is gentle, but as you see from this website, a lot goes on.
