Mundesley is a pretty village situated on the coast of North Norfolk and has a resident population of around 2,500. It is a mixture of rich farming land and a popular seaside resort, frequented by many people during the summer. The beautiful beach is one of the cleanest around and there are plentiful sands stretching for miles with very little shingle.
Mundesley has its own inshore lifeboat, which is crewed and administered by local volunteers. Have a look at their impressive website via the Links Page. There is also a Coastwatch station, manned all year round during daylight hours by local volunteers and, during the summer there is a safe area of the beach continually watched over by the lifeguards from the RNLI.
The village itself is well served by local shops in and around its small High Street.
A well-equipped medical centre, a library, a post-office, three pubs and various B&Bs make it an ideal place
to live or to visit yet, somehow, it has not lost its old-world charm with thatched roofs, stone walls
and many quaint and charming cottages.
Mundesley sits in a dip in the cliffs and only a short climb up a footpath brings you out onto the clifftop where there are spectacular views across the whole of the village and right across to Happisburgh lighthouse in the other direction. From the clifftop, you can walk across to Stow Mill passing the Mundesley Holiday Centre.
At least twice a year, there is a play or musical staged by the Mundesley Players in
the Coronation Hall and this is a hugely popular event. There is also a village cinema showing a film every month. Shortly after Christmas there is a pantomime
produced in aid of the Friends of Mundesley Inshore Lifeboat.
All in all, Mundesley is a real example of an unspoilt English village.
