The favorite English coast resort of Great Yarmouth sits at the mouth of the River Yare (clearly from where it got its name), it has a populace of roughly seventy thousand people, it stands between the Norfolk Broads and the sea. A fishing port for generations and over the last few decades it has helped support the many offshore rigs that can be found in the area. It has been renowned as a coastal resort since back in the late 18th century when saltwater baths opened up beside the seafront.

The town has reached a peaceful coexistence between its ample seafront, which runs for approximately 6 kilometres, and its busy commercial harbor, which runs along the River Yare over 3 km, pretty much parallel to the beachfront. The River Yare meanders over the flat low-lying terrain east of Norwich, then widens out into the huge Breydon Water, after which it moves sharply in a southerly direction, making a peninsula on which Great Yarmouth is found.

North West Tower and Bure Bridge - - 803908The old settlement and dock developed down the eastern banks of the Yare, it subsequently continued to expand over the western banks into a district quite confusingly called Southtown. Returning to the coast, Great Yarmouth boasts 2 piers, Wellington Pier and Britannia Pier, the Britannia Pier is home to the well known Britannia Theatre together with a fairground, amusements, tenpin bowling and restaurants. On Marine Parade is the now derelict Winter Gardens, built of steel and glass, locals are hoping that this building will get the six million or so required to restore it.

Great Yarmouth's Historic Past: There was settlement in the Great Yarmouth area as far back as the Roman era, with the Gariannonum fortification erected by the Romans near the place that the River Yare flows into the sea. There was a permanent village in Yarmouth by the time of the Domesday Book. The village quite possibly grew due to the first rate fishing here and a significant amount of fishermen were among those listed in the Domesday Book, the total population back then was about four hundred, all then in the Gorleston manor.

It was King John who first awarded Yarmouth a charter to have a market (generally known as the right of toll) in 1208, this charter at the same time stated that it must be "a free borough forever". Fifty three years later the town was given leave to construct town walls by King Henry III, it was also allowed to have its very own prison, a fair amount of both the prison and the walls exist in modern day Great Yarmouth. Yarmouth grew as a fishing town and port over the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries, while plenty of combat occured between the sailors of Yarmouth and those of the Cinque Ports, with a lot of ships lost in the conflict. In the late 1340s the Black Death broke out in Yarmouth, and hit it in a more severe way than almost any city or town in Britain, with about seventy percent of the inhabitants dead as a result.

Between the town walls and the river the structures were squeezed along over a hundred narrow alleys often called 'Rows', several only one yard wide, a selection of still exist nowadays. Yet another relic from those long past years is the superb 13th C Tolhouse, considered to be one of Britain's most ancient public buildings, below ground level you will discover dark dungeons. Through the medieval period and afterward, the port became successful from the fishing trade. The Yarmouth Free Herring Fair, which occurred every autumn, was certainly one of the greatest of the trade fairs in medieval times.

The best days for the herring trade was to arrive prior to World War 1 when more than one thousand one hundred herring fishing boats worked out of the port. A team of women (named "fish girls") the majority from Scotland went to the town each autumn time in order to process the huge quantities of fish, said to average over five hundred million fish over the glory years.
