    I worked out that this was my 13th "proper" explore since diving into the wonderful world of UE a couple of months ago - although it seems like a lot longer than that. It was lucky #13 in that the forecasted terrible weather held off, and access was unproblematic. It was unlucky #13 in that I got busted by Mr Secca for the first time! Still he was a decent enought sort, so not a bad way to pop my getting busted cherry I suppose.

    Unfortunately due to the aforementioned white van man our explore only lasted about half an hour, so a slightly limited selection here, but hopefully you'll think it was still worth putting up. For some great shots of the pool I'd recommend norfolkexplorer's recent report.

    Explored with Kubix_UK.

    A brief history:
    This holiday camp open in 1969, and ran for 38 years before closing its doors on 5 January 2009. A local new article from the time of the closure can be read here.

    Landowner Northern Trust had pinned hope on developing the site for residential use, but following heated objections from residents the plans were withdrawn in January 2012 before they came before the development control committee.

    Residents feared the development would place a strain on schools and doctors’ surgeries, put more cars on the road and take a valuable tourism asset away from Hemsby.
    In a change of tack, the site has gone back on the market advertised for “tourism/ leisure uses”.

    Come to think of it, we were in this zone when Secca caught us…he must have known that this would be our natural habitat. Clever Secca.

    As the sound of Secca’s van loomed large, I just had time to fire off a quick panorama before this explore was toast.

    Thanks for stopping by campers.
