A small, unpaginated booklet giving the history of this Norfolk seaside community well-known now for its bird sanctuary at Blakeney Point. "Blakeney owes its origin to the sea and the ships that sailed on her; from mediaeval times to the close of the 19th century it relied on trade with other coastal towns in the United Kingdom, and also carried on a trade with continental ports across the North Sea. In its early years it was a flourishing port, ranking in importance with King's Lynn and Great Yarmouth, and its life span as a port were the colourful days of sail."
