Trimingham Beach

Trimingham Beach - Norfolk

Trimingham is a secluded beach, largely owing to the challenge of finding and accessing it. Located at the end of a steep narrow lane it is easier to park at nearby Mundesley and walk along the coast.

Despite being somewhat awkward to reach the beach is popular with watersports enthusiasts, dog walkers and anglers.

The high cliffs at Trimingham are composed of some of the youngest chalk in the United Kingdom and are well known as a spot for fossil hunting and collecting shells.

The cliffs at Trimingham suffer from quite extreme coastal erosion and a number of sea defences have been erected to help reduce this. None-the-less it is advised not to set up too close to the cliffside.
