Crabbing on Blakeney quay

The serene Blakeney Quay and village belies its busy industrial history that is now difficult to imagine.

The quay area has now become a great place to learn to catch the local crabs and to launch sailing and pleasure craft.

The Friary Hills offer an ideal location to have a short walk in a dog free zone.
