Norfolk Coast Path, Beacon Hill
Norfolk Coast Path, Beacon Hill
Beacon Hill is the highest point in Norfolk. The hill is located 0.75 miles south of the village of West Runton on the North Norfolk coast. At its summit the hill is 103 metres above sea level. The hill is also known as Roman Camp. The summit and surrounding woodlands are now in the care of the National Trust.
Beacon Hill is a part of the Cromer Ridge which is a ridge of old glacial moraines (terminal moraine) that stands next to the coast above Cromer. The Cromer Ridge was the front line of the ice sheet for some time at the last glaciations, which is shown by the large size of the feature. All the material that was dredged up from the North Sea was deposited by the glaciers to form Beacon Hill and the rest of the ridge.
