About the Book


It is almost impossible not to like Cromer: a medieval town which two centuries ago transformed itself into one of the most attractive seaside resorts anywhere. Nationally famous for its crabs, fearless lifeboatmen and pier theatre, Cromer is a feast for anyone with an eye for good architecture. Its wealth of rumbustious nineteenth-century buildings is dominated by the magnificent 160ft tower of the parish church of St Peter & St Paul. With 96 pages of comparative views dating from the 1850s to the present day, this book take a close look at this most delightful of coastal towns, which fully deserves its long-held tag as the 'Gem of the Norfolk Coast.' Hugh Madgin's affectionate portrait of the area is essential reading not only for residents, but also to the thousands of visitors who flock here and enjoy the scenery each summer season.
