Views From Back Common, Beeston Regis, Norfolk

As well as the flora and forna to be found in Back Common, it is well worth taking the time to look at the scenery around you, especially when you are nearer the cliffs and are looking down on to the scenery around you.

The main towering feature to be seen is Beeston Regis's All Saints Church.  The church dates back to the 14th and 15th Century.


To get to the church you have to go through the neighbouring static caravan site.




As you can see from this shot, coastal erosion is happening along this stretch of coast, as with most of the coast line,  it won't be long before the caravans in this shot will have to be moved.



Off the coast of Sheringham you can see a large wind farm in the horizon.


A prominent feature within Back Common is 'Beeston Hill or Beeston Bump', which stands at 207 feet (63m). The hill was left behind after the glaciers receded from the area.  Here you can see the steps that zig zag up to the top.


You will often see some interesting cloud formations in the East Anglian skies and today was no exception.


Looking back from the coastal road you get to see 'Beeston Bump' in all its glory, with the houses nestled around its base.
