Walcott is a small village and civil parish on the North Norfolk coast in England between Mundesley and Happisburgh. The name is formed from the Anglian word 'walh' (cognate with 'Welsh') and the Anglo-Saxon 'cot' meaning 'cottage, hut, shelter or den'. The village is 19.1mi north east of Norwich, 11.9mi south east of Cromer and 137mi north east of London. The village lies 5.6mi east of the town of North Walsham.The village is the only point where the B1159 (the coast road) actually runs along the edge of the sea. This makes it a popular stopping off point for day-trippers and storm watchers.The parish was created in 2008, having formerly been part of Happisburgh parish.HistoryThis section is adapted from The Historic Happing Website with permission.Geology, geography and climateThe geology and geography in the vicinity of Walcott have been shaped by past ice ages, sea incursions and rivers that have deposited material over the underlying chalk.The last ice sheet left Norfolk around 16,000 BC allowing pine trees to colonise the region.Between 10,000 - 6000 BC the climate became warm and dry allowing alder, oak, elm & lime into the region.The increasing temperature caused the sea level to rise and around 5000 BC the North Sea was first connected to the English Channel via a narrow strait. Eventually there were wide inter-tidal estuaries around Norfolk, which started to deposit marine clay over the original peat in the Broadland area.
