The Wash Monster has just reversed away from the promenade ready to set off towards the sandbanks with its passengers.
The Wash Monster
"The Wash Monster" is an amphibious vehicle operated by Searles Sea Tours LinkExternal link. It operates out of Hunstanton, taking tourists out onto the sandbanks and transferring them to the company's other vessels.

The monster is an ex-US Army LARC-XV (Lighter, Amphibious Re-supply, Cargo, 15-ton capacity) built in 1967 for landing supplies on beaches too shallow for conventional landing craft. This makes it perfect for the shallow waters and sandbanks of the Wash.
