Caister On Sea village, Norfolk

Caister On Sea  village information

Caister-on-Sea was formerly known as Caister-next-Yarmouth, but in 1927 the parish council formally applied for it to become known what it is today.

From 1281 beacons and, much later, lighthouses have guarded Caister’s coastline. Its lighthouses were the first on the British coastline and the first lifeboat stationed in Caister was in 1845.

In 1904 tragedy hit the village when nine crewmen died in a lifeboat disaster. A memorial stands in the cemetery in their honour and the famous saying, ‘Caister men never turn back’ derived from this disaster.

In 1930 the 18th century manor house was turned into a 36-bedroom hotel boasting a nine-hole golf course. However, 11 years later, after continual sea erosion, the hotel collapsed into the sea. It also claimed a row of ten houses in an area nearby called The Warren.
