Don't get cut off by the tide

Tide Times

To avoid being cut off by the incoming tide on the sands or marshes, make sure you are back on the landward side of any creeks or channels or back on the coast path, Blakeney quay or Morston hard around four hours before high water Wells bar... you've slightly more time than this inside Blakeney harbour while the tide fills the harbour and main channel round the point but once the water starts to flow into the creeks you will rapidly be cut off.
