Hemsby

Hemsby is a village, civil parish and seaside resort in the English county of Norfolk. It is situated some 7.5 mi (12.1 km) north of the town of Great Yarmouth. In the 2001 census had a population of 2,973 in 1,221 households. Hemsby borders the villages of Winterton-on-Sea and Scratby. For the purposes of local government, the parish falls within the district of Great Yarmouth.

A Norfolk county map dated around 1610 shows a headland, called Winterton Ness, extending into the sea north-east of Hemsby. This headland has now almost entirely disappeared through coastal erosion.
