TG3930 : Low Light, Happisburgh

taken 12 years ago, near to Whimpwell Green, Norfolk, Great Britain

Low Light, Happisburgh
Low Light, Happisburgh
In the distance, you can see chalets on Doggetts Lane protected behind a concrete sea wall.

Where this sea wall stops and the wooden revetments were removed in the early 80's a bay has opened up. To the right (inland) the ground drops away and is soon only a few metres above sea level.

This stretch of beach is known as 'low light' as it was the position of one of a pair of lighthouses at Happisburgh, forming leading lights marking safe passage around the Haisbro' Sands 8 miles offshore. The 'high light' still remains as the current Happisburgh Lighthouse TG3830
