We used to go to Walcott quite a lot when I was a kid, it’s was and is all concrete, groynes and flat inland space, with the rising glacial moraines starting just to the north and a again to the south. You can see the past up on the cliffs to the north the rise of the land against the sweep of flatness, the golf ball like radar station at Trimingham just visible above the layesr. Nearby is the cold war target Bacton gas site, not romantic at all, all pylons and vents against the sky again visible in the background.
The flatness is a clue, sitting on the edges of the Estuaries that were formed here in Roman and Anglo-Saxon times, clays and peats laying over each other marking the time, filled and emptied by the passing phases of the climate raising and lowering the sea level. It would have been considerably further inland back then, not a buildings along a ribbon of tarmac and a wall for storm watching over the container ships far out on the horizon. An unusual place name a possible Celtic survival, an eastern outpost, the Welsh House.
