Wells-Next-the-Sea Norfolk – A seaside town, port and resort on the north coast of Norfolk in East Anglia, United Kingdom, Wells-Next-the-Sea, or simply Wells as the locals call it, has a population of about two and a half thousand inhabitants, and is located to the east of Hunstanton (some fifteen miles distant) and to the north of Fakenham. Wells no doubt gets its name from the large number of springs to be found around the town. Wells-Next-the-Sea is well known for its lifeboat, though disaster struck in 1880 when 11 of the crew were lost in a great storm.
