Old Lifeboat House, Blakeney Point
In 1910 University College London purchased the Old Lifeboat House at Blakeney Point and established a purpose built laboratory in 1913. With the adjacent building to the right of the photo it is still used as UCL's Blakeney Point Field Station. The Old Lifeboat House also acts as an information centre.

Blakeney National Nature Reserve extends to 1097ha (2711 acres) almost all of which is within the ownership of the National Trust and supports a wide range of coastal plant communities with many nationally important species. Blakeney Point itself is a 3˝ml long sand and shingle spit, noted for its colonies of breeding terns (over 4 species) and migrant birds passing through. There is a large colony of common and grey seals which are best view by boat.
