Holkham is a spectacular beach to visit at any time, but the azure blue sky on this occasion added to the dynamic. The tide was out, increasing the sense of space. Horses exercised along the shoreline, a handful of riders stopping to chat about the beach. Back from the waterline, a dense bed of razor clam shells whistled musically in the breeze, as I walked towards the tree-lined backdrop to this wonderful beach. Highly recommended.
The beach as part of a project and homage for Joe.

This is the iconic Norfolk beach, with miles of natural beauty and a great sense of space. Part of the Holkham Estate, the beach is usually accessed via Lady Anne’s Drive, opposite the Victoria Hotel on the A149. There’s a variety of walks, such is the size of the beach. A left turn at the bottom of the drive takes you through the pinewoods and back along the beach. Turning right takes you towards Well-Next-The-Sea and its lifeboat house and dunes, again among the pinewoods. This beach has remarkable light and it’s no wonder that it’s featured in many films, including the final scene of “Shakespeare in Love”. Highly recommended.
It keeps pulling Steve back.
Nick is a long way from home.
