Starting off on the Royal Cromer Golf Course, I follow a path at the top of the cliff along the sea front before walking through the village. As can be seen in this film, coastal erosion is a major problem. The soft boulder clay cliffs slump because of the water running through the clay, and the resulting material on the beach is removed by the succeeding high tides. And so the process continues over the years. In the neighbouring village of Sidestrand, the whole church was moved back from the cliff edge in the 19th century, though the tower of the church was left standing on the cliff top. Out to sea there used to be another town but was unfortunately victim to the seas erosion on East Anglia, this town has been nicknamed Understrand. The London journalist and travel writer Clement Scott came to Overstrand in 1883, christened the area ''Poppyland'', and wrote about the church tower on the cliff edge and its "Garden of Sleep". While in Overstrand he stayed at the Mill House with miller Alfred Jermy and his daughter Louie. Louie became "the Maid of the Mill" in his articles about ''Poppyland''. Scott had many London contacts in the theatrical world, and his writings led a number of them and others from London society to come to Overstrand. Some bought land in the village and had houses built there, and for a while the village was the place to visit. A large hotel was built on the cliff edge, though this slid into the sea in the 1950s. Whilst the large houses of the gentry have largely passed from private ownership to other uses, the visitor to Overstrand can still appreciate the development that took place at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th century. The Overstrand biplane bomber was named after the village; being made at the nearby Boulton & Paul aircraft factory in the early 1930s My channel on you tube : www.youtube.com/alanheath is one of the most prolific from Poland. I have produced around 1,800 original films, most in English. My big interest in life is travel and history but I have also placed films on other subjects. Please feel free to ask questions in the public area or to comment on things you disagree with. Sometimes there are mistakes because I speak without preparation. If I see the mistakes myself, I make this clear in the text. Please also leave a star rating! There are a number of films here on the packaging industry. This is because I am the publisher of Central and Eastern European Packaging -- www.ceepackaging.com - the international platform for the packaging industry in this region focusing on the latest innovations, trends, design, branding, legislation and environmental issues with in-depth profiles of major industry achievers. Most people may think packaging pretty boring but it possibly effects your life more than you really imagine! Central and Eastern European Packaging examines the packaging industry throughout this region, but in particular in the largest regional economies which are Russia, Germany, Poland, Czech Republic, Ukraine and Austria. That is not to say that the other countries are forgotten, they are not, but obviously there is less going on. However the fact that there are so many travel related films here is not from holidays but from business trips attending trade fairs around the region. Every packaging trade fair is a new excuse to make another film!
