Mundesley village is a popular coastal village, with a population of just over 2500, situated on the picturesque North Norfolk coast. With the perfect balance of countryside, cliffs, farm land and golden sand, Mundesley is the ideal place for owning a holiday home on the coast…
According to the Domesday Book in 1058, Mundesley was known as “Museleai” and was owned by William de Warenne, and was given to him by William the Conqueror. In 1841, according to the census at the time the population was 453 – the train station was built in 1898, which employed 11 villagers, and by 1901 the population had grown to 682.
Unfortunately there is no longer a railway station – the railway in Mundesley suffered in 1964 as a result of Dr Beeching’s (chairman of British Railways at the time) cuts. Part of the old railway track is now a popular walk in nearby Pigney Woods.
Mundesley village consists of a village cinema, golf course which was set up by Open Champion Harry Vardon, a parish Church, 3 public houses, and various shops and amenities. The village also has its own maritime museum, a lifeboat, and a Coastwatch station which is constantly manned by local volunteers and funded completely by public donations. There is a real sense of community in Mundesley, and there is always something going on to keep up the village spirit.
