Burnham-On-Sea was mentioned in the will of King Alfred as a royal domain, so its history goes way back to Saxon times. It is mentioned in the Domesday Book, which attributes ownership to someone simply called Walter. Over the years, the weather has hit Burnham hard on occasions. In 1607, the town had its own tsunami, which flooded land up to 20 miles inland, drowning 29 people in surrounding towns and villages. By the early 19th century, Burnham had become a very popular seaside resort, attracting many visitors to its charming promenade and sandy beaches. Then in March 1897, a south westerly gale blew up the Bristol Channel, bringing with it not only extremely heavy seas, but also heavy snow. The Norwegian barque, SS Normen was forced onto the Berrow Sands and floundered there. its wreck can still be seen today.
