hi nanny ,
you best bet would be i guess is to get Daltons Weekley  paper nearer the season or maybe now to see holiday property advertised , have had many lucky times with them over the years with looking for a holiday chalet around Gt Y armouth area and with a really good price too ( last time was at easter 2002 for a week £100 for the week , and let us have it from the good friday till the following sunday if we wanted it but came home on the saturday ) alternatively look on the Eastern Daily Press web site in classifieds adds at http://new.edp24.co.uk/default.aspx
good luck

steve and vicky

I know somebody who owns one of the houses there. I will e-mail him and ask if he knows of any to let.

The Marrams consist of those five remaining bungalows to the north of Hemsby Gap, towards Winterton-on-Sea. Once there were 98, but the severe erosion that resulted from offshore aggregate dredging has brought the demise of the rest.

My wife and I own one there (having lost the original to the sea)which to help pay the costs we do occasionally provide to family, friends and selected people. It all rather depends on numbers, needs and the times wanted.

If those interested wish to ring me on 01603-402554 or e-mail me at pat.gowen@ntlworld.com we can discuss the issue.

Hi Pat and nice to see you have managed to get out of Norwich and have a look around here.
You have met Nigel ( G4AXA ) and now of course I have popped up too (G4ONF).
Some interesting discussions on here and I,m sure you will be able to add your wealth of knowledge regarding the Broads and Coastal strip too.
You have seen some of my photos on my site so you will find some more as well as others on here.

Hope you and Norma had a VGX and HNY to you both.


Enjoy the site and we will look forward to any additional comments you might be able to add.

Regards

just wondering if the california sands site and bungalows are still in existance or has the sea claimed those as well?
i can remember the fish and chip shop on a very sandy lane to the beach,and how they had a rotisserie for hot chickens which people qued to the doors for.
this would be around early seventies.
there were a couple of cottages down on the lane too, one of them was owned by a man called mr marsden from wirksworth, derbyshire. they sometimes let them to family and friends for holidays.

Yes, Julia, surpisingly enough, they still exist. Until three years ago the erosion at California was severe, taking the beach access ramp twice. The same was true for Hemsby, where earlier we lost a hundred metres of beach and dune, but only some two metres in the past three years.

The main erosion then shifted to Winterton, where the Beach Cafe, once 150 metres from the sea, now overlooks it. This is likely to disappear in late February this year. The Coastguard Lookout site has gone already.

Now it appears to be attacking Scratby, which, once very stable, acreting in fact, is now disappearing rather quickly. It is difficult to predict where it will continue and where it may shift to, as the creation of new gulleys on the seabed and the seizure of the protective offshore banks by the dredgers is a variable according to how much seabed is taken, when, and from where.

The greatest thread to The Broads is the demise of the defences between Winterton and Happisburgh, as they front the low lying Brograve levels, the main path to Broadland. Further funding for Sea Palling has been denied, so that entry point is now impacted.

Further information on this can be seen by visiting www.marinet.org.uk to read the main breifing paper and the new article on coastal defences entitled 'Why Canute Failed'. And perhaps that on Shoreline Management Plans too whilst you are there.

Regards to all,  Pat
