Morston is a thriving community centred on a tourist trade. Over 100,000 come annually, to sail, walk, birdwatch, fish, water-ski, powerboat or – for the majority – to take a ferry to see the seals and wild birdlife. The land around Morston continues to be farmed on an arable basis with a small amount of sheep farming.
ALL SAINTS CHURCH
On high ground overlooking the North Sea, All Saints Church, Morston is one of many imposing churches in North Norfolk. All Saints is famous for its commanding aspect, its 1480 rood screen, its 15th century octagonal font (carved with the Evangelists and their emblems). It is also famed for its lightning-struck (1743) tower, which contains a single bell. The church dates back to the 12th century and has always served the fishing community of the nearby tiny village.
Morston Quay is situated just within the shelter of Blakeney Point. The Point forms a wonderful backdrop to the quay area with its salt marshes in the foreground.
The picturesque small quay supports the local sea faring enterprises of seal boat trips that operate year round, a small scale fish, mussel, crab, lobster fishing industry and is a hub of activity for water based activities.
