February 2020-David Stannard “Spoyl’d by the Rage of the Sea.” A brief history of North Sea storms.

Event Details

  • Date:



Sheringham History Group resumes its talks programme following the New Year break with a presentation by David Stannard entitled “Spoyl’d by the Rage of the Sea” in which David will examine the local history of North Sea surges.
Many members will recall the storms of 2013 and perhaps 1953, but events dating back into the Medieval period and their effects on the geography of the Norfolk coastline will feature.
Whilst time and tide conditions mean that Nature will not be providing an appropriately dramatic backdrop, we can be sure of a very interesting evening.
The meeting takes place on Wednesday 5th February 2020.

The talk starts at 7.30 with coffee/tea from 7.00.

Visitors are asked for a donation of £2.


Meet at the Sheringham Museum at the Mo.

The Museum is on the seafront in Sheringham. At the bottom of the High Street, turn right and walk along the sea wall  for about 100 metres. The  museum will be in front of you. Please use the School Entrance towards the rear of the building.
