Cromer Wendy station is on the top of the well-known Cromer lighthouse, Overstrand Rd, south of Cromer town. The area is used by Hang Gliders and Paragliders who belong to the Norfolk Hang Gliding and Paragliding Club, who should be contacted before flying a Hang or Paraglider in the area. The data is also popular with sailors, windsurfers, and so on.
For detailed location, see the linked map.

There is no particular wind direction that is critical to the general use of the station. The anemometer is approx 50 feet above ground level, and is in clear air for most directions. The station reads out in Knots and Beaufort Force, rather than in MPH, like all our coastal stations. This is because most sea and beach users are happier with those readings. more...
Hang and Paragliders using the small cliffs nearby will obviously need East to Northeasterly winds to do so.
