Aylmerton is set in an area of outstanding Natural beauty in the heart of North Norfolk. Although this area is called Roman Camp, in fact, brown ironstone and slag found here date back to Saxon and medieval times. The site has been used from the earliest days as a coastal warning point as the area called the Runtons was considered one of the most dangerous places on the Norfolk coast for pirates and invaders.
