Gorleston Groynes

Gorleston-On-Sea, also known colloquially as Gorleston, is a settlement in Norfolk in the United Kingdom, forming part of the larger town of Great Yarmouth. Situated at the mouth of the River Yare it was a port town at the time of the Domesday Book. The port then became a centre of fishing for herring along with salt-pans used for the production of salt to preserve the fish. In Edwardian times fishing industry rapidly declined and its role changed that of a seaside resort.
