  • I believe the structure is properly called The Norfolk Naval Pillar, and in spite of it being surrounded now by a trading/ indus trial estate only metres from the beach, the noisiest things around for most of the time are the seagulls! It's nice to have benches here just to sit and think as you read the information boards. The one on the right looks like bronze and has thoughtfully been translated into Braille. See photo's. A lovely touch. It is open to the public on a limited basis. Further research will inform those interested in climbing the Pillar.
  • Just so people know this was built some twenty years before the one in London so its the original as such. Also one of nelsons crew or a local I believe was warden of it until his death
  • Fascinating information on the various information plaques around its periphery. And generally very peaceful - good for remembering those we have lost.
  • Beautiful historic structure
  • Fascinating monument in the middle of a trading estate!
