The distinctive striped roof awnings of the bustling weekend 
market stalls selling all manner of goods,
the summer flowering gardens, secluded tearooms and  
winding hilly trails in a dappled hilltop wood.

On a steep beach gangway lay wooden crab pots, rope and 
weathered fishing boats in scarlet, navy and white,
the tapering golden rays of an autumnal setting sun highlight 
  tranquil mirrored sea in gentle evening twilight.

The Poppy Line has a green and cream signal box with 
the railway station’s matching canopy nearby,
a vintage steam train’s whistle sounds and a train pulls under 
the bridge billowing smoke clouds into clear blue sky.

The traditional wooden criss-cross railway fence where
mainline meets preserved and the nostalgia of steam,
an undulating clifftop golf course with worn sandy paths lined
with golden gorse leading to manicured greens.

Sheringham Park has towering mature woodland and an 
elegant folly with distant windmill and sea views,
leaf cushioned paths meander through rhododendron and
 azalea scented blooms in every colour, shade and hue.

The inshore lifeboat’s slipway reaches across rounded cobbles,
surrounded by a beach of pebbles and golden sand,
a picturesque row of beach huts overlook large rocks
protecting the promenade where sea meets the land.

During late summer’s busy carnival week, swags of colourful 
bunting line the length of the coastal main street,
a thriving little theatre and decorative clock tower wait 
patiently at a busy junction where two roads meet.

A curving sea wall with picturesque murals, the ever-changing 
tides and skies, this coastal town you loved so dear,
walking along the promenade in beautiful sunshine or a blustery 
winter gale, brings you ever closer, brings you ever near.
