Blakeney in the Eighteenth Century

This ever popular small booklet provides an insight into life in a maritime port. Price £2.50.

Blakeney Point: From the Point to Cley and Salthouse

A publication of the BAHS that is sold in aid of the History Centre. Price, £4.50.

The coast of North Norfolk is one of the most fascinating in the UK. Here on the Point Professor Oliver established his pioneering studies on the development of tidal lands.

The guide helps the reader to understand the landscape and natural features of Blakeney Point and the shingle spit that extends eastwards to Cley and Salthouse. 

This tour is taken from the book ‘Tidal lands: a study of shore problems‘ originally written in 1917 and published in 1918 by Professor F W Oliver & A E Carey. This guide still resonates today. Additional explanatory notes added when this booklet was published in 2012.

Random Reflections of Blakeney

This booklet by Margaret Loose provides her reflections on life in Blakeney. Price £3.00.
