Great Yarmouth

Alarm went at 2-30am and met Moley on the beach at Great Yarmouth at 4am for a sunrise shoot, wrong no sign of sun behind the clouds.
Then went Thurne to photograph the Windpump, still no sun but a pleasent hour or so there.
Final port of call was Gorleston-on-Sea where the sun came out at last.


Thurne is a small village and civil parish in the English county of Norfolk. It is located on the River Thurne in The Broads, some 18 km (11 mi) west of the town of Great Yarmouth and 20 km (12 mi) east of the city of Norwich.
The village lies at the end of Thurne Dyke, a popular mooring, not least because of Thurne windpump, which became known locally as Morse's Mill, after the late Bob Morse, who purchased it to prevent it from being sold for scrap. Painted white it is a popular object for photography. There is a second windpump across the river, the St Benet's Level windpump.




Gorleston (also referred to as Gorleston-on-Sea) is adjacent to the town of Great Yarmouth, in the English county of Norfolk. It is situated to the south and west side of the River Yare which separates it from Great Yarmouth.
Gorleston's main claim to fame is as the historic centre of the herring fishing industry with sailing drifters. It was a major seaside resort in Edwardian times.
