Norfolk Victorian Seasides & Fishing Villages
- Blakeney

The Runtons had always been a farming, fishing and agricultural area until around 1902 the railways were being built with viaducts constructed at East Runton. Many of the farmworkers then went to work on the railways and bridges because the pay was better.The railways also meant the beginning of beach holidays with both East and West Runton well situated between Cromer and Sheringham to claim their share of holidaymakers. Of course the latest claim to fame is fossil hunting with a mammoth skeleton found at West Runton.
