These two industries were at their peak in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, during which time Sheringham gained access to the countries rail network making it possible for fish to be transported more efficiently to market. At it's peak Sheringham boasted a total of 200 fishing boats. Today however, this has decreased to only eight.
