The Upper Lawn

Three hundred years ago North Lodge Park’s upper lawn was a field belonging to Cliff House on the Overstrand Road, becoming part of North Lodge Park in 1946, with the connecting bridge built in 1956.

Chronicles of the Park

North Lodge Park opened on Saturday 18 May 1929 – and to mark 90 years of Cromer’s clifftop park we have published a 28 page ‘Brief History’ of the Park 1929-2019. You can buy the book online, in the park cafe or Jarrolds.

Our Baking Boy Wonder from Harlow in Essex has been busy cooking during the half term holiday. We wonder if Freddie, at just 15, is our youngest cake maker – he is certainly still very keen on working his way through our Cook Book now in a 2nd edition.

Giant sausage rolls turned out exactly as the photo and tasted wonderful he says. So too, the Iced Fruit Cake chosen because he was intrigued by the inclusion of a tin of apricots. Our Carrot Cake recipe is a winner he adds as an apple has been added to the grated mixture but this week’s favourite bake was Paradise Slice – a family favourite with everyone.

Food Technology lessons at school have been made more difficult due to Covid- related hygiene rules which limits the number of utensils each pupil can use. None of those restrictions at home but Freddie, it seems, is becoming a true crafting devotee and actually resists mum’s electric mixer to hand-beat butter and sugar together. He says he feels more ‘ownership’ with the finished result even if it is harder work!

Thanks to BarenbrugUK for providing us with these wildflower seeds, containing a beautiful flower called Viper's Bugloss. We know this plant was common in Cromer in 1885, but is now missing from our town. It will be great to see it back in Cromer, helping to create a buzz in the meadow 🐝 🦋 🐛

Thank you. You have sponsored over 360 planks on the new bridge, raising over £40,000 towards the total project cost. Our thanks go to all funders, including Cromer Town Council who funded the play equipment, and to NNDC who have agreed to take responsibility for ongoing maintenance of the bridge and play area. Thanks to Cromer Trophies & Engraving Ltd for their work on the plaques, to The Grove, Cromer for their support. Thank you to all sponsors.

Apologies for the delay installing the final plaques – we wanted to get the grass matting down near the cliff path before they were installed.
