The East Anglia region
The North Norfolk coast is a beautiful region for walking, exercise, birds, wildlife or best of all just relaxing. Miles of the contry's most beautiful beaches and vast expanses of dramatic land and skies await.
The name Wells comes from the fact that it used to tap the springs of fresh water held by the underlying chalk on which Wells is built. Wells became known as Wells-next-the-Sea in the 1800s when the increase in travel meant it was needed to distinguish between towns. The name was chosen as the town's official title by Wells Urban District Council in 1956. Wells' prime location meant that in the late 16th Century, Wells (as it was known) was the major port for the area, with up to 19 ships trading corn. Wells' status as a port carried on well into the early 20th Century, with the distinctive Granary and loading gantry built in 1903. Throughout the 20th century large coasters from Europe and further afield would land goods at the port. The Granary has now been turned into luxury flats with a Quayside view. Sowerby's estate agents occupy the ground floor.
