Blakeney Channel

Coastal Team

You will find Blakeney set on the stunningly beautiful North Norfolk coast, which has been recognised nationally and internationally through its many designations: Special Area of Conservation (SAC), an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), National Nature Reserve (NNR), and Special Protection Area (SPA).

The village of Blakeney is a vibrant community with many activities and voluntary organisations which support and care for the residents of the village, as well as welcoming the many visitors that like to come here all year round.

There are many attractions that draw people to Blakeney – history, architecture, hotels, self-catering accommodation, restaurants, pubs, walks, seal trips, shops, events, culture, and its environment. An important part of this is Blakeney harbour and all of the associated pursuits – sailing, bird watching, canoeing, rowing, fishing, water-skiing, to name but a few….  

Yet many of these activities are dependent on Blakeney continuing to be a viable harbour. Our Coastal Team’s objective is to maintain Blakeney Harbour and Channel as a viable navigable port as it is today. We see that this is essential in order to sustain the village’s economy, with all its many and varied related businesses, as well as the benefits for the environment and nature.

So we as a team, made up of volunteers from the village and the surrounding areas, are now working to see how we can manage the natural siltation of Blakeney Channel and maintain the navigation of the harbour at its current levels. We plan to work with the National Trust, the Environment Agency, the community and all the other interested parties in developing our plans, then the implementation of these once we have identified a sustainable method to control the harbour’s siltation.
