Cley Next The Sea is a picturesque village on the North Norfolk coast, situated in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Cley (pronounced 'Cly') is just 1 mile east of Blakeney and 4 miles north of Holt, on the main coast road between Wells and Sheringham. Well known for its Windmill and its magnificent church, Cley is also home to the NWT Cley Marshes Nature Reserve, internationally reputed as a premier bird watching site, popular with birds and visitors all year round!

Cley is also popular with walkers and is on the Norfolk Coastal Path which can be followed along to Holme Next The Sea where it joins the ancient Peddars Way National Trail - ideal for those who like something more challenging! Cley was originally a lot more 'next the sea' than it is now - in the Middle Ages it was a thriving trading port and the harbour was down in front of St Margaret's Church - hard to imagine when you visit the area today. Sadly the village was struck by the plague and a misguided landowner unlawfully attempted land reclamation which caused the river to gradually silt up, both of which contributed to a decline in the population and wealth of the village. Some lovely pictures of old Cley can be seen at St Margaret's Church
