Cruso & Wilkin’s Estate Office is situated on Northgate in Hunstanton. Hunstanton is a 19th-century resort town, initially known as New Hunstanton to distinguish it from the adjacent old village from which it took its name. The new town soon exceeded the village in scale and population.

Cruso & Wilkin’s Estate Office is situated on Northgate in Hunstanton. Hunstanton is a 19th-century resort town, initially known as New Hunstanton to distinguish it from the adjacent old village from which it took its name. The new town soon exceeded the village in scale and population.

The original settlement of Hunstanton, now known as Old Hunstanton, gained its name from the River Hun, which runs to the coast just to the east of Old Hunstanton. The river begins in the grounds of Old Hunstanton Park which surrounds the old moated hall, the ancestral home of the Le Strange family. Old Hunstanton village is of prehistoric origin and lies near to the head of Peddars Way. In 1970, evidence of Neolithic settlement was found. The quiet character of the village remains distinct from its busy sibling and complements it with cliff top walks past a privately owned redundant lighthouse and the ruins of St Edmund's Chapel, built in 1272. In 1846, Henry Styleman Le Strange decided to develop the area south ofOld Hunstanton as a sea-bathing resort. He persuaded a group of like-minded investors to fund the construction of a railway line from King's Lynn to the town, to bring tourists and visitors. This was a great success – the Lynn & Hunstanton Railway became one of the most consistently profitable railway companies in the country. In 1861, Le Strange, as principal landowner, became a director of the railway company and by 1862 the line had been built. We carry out the management of the Le Strange Estate from the Hunstanton Office as well as Residential Sales & Lettings.
