Horsey Staithe 


Two cottages were on the Staithe. In one of these lived Mr PEGG, the waterman who used to take people out on to the Mere in the 1890's.

In 1910 the spark from a passing steam engine set fire to the thatch, and the cottages were destroyed.

On the site, a Community Store was established by Major BUXTON in 1934, so the villagers could sell their produce to the holiday makers arriving on the mere by boat. Only Horsey residents could buy shares (only 49 shareholders to ensure that the company could not become "public"), the profits from which were distributed to the shareholders. It is currently leased to the National Trust as a tearooms and souvenir shop.
