'Robin Friend' is the name of an extensive exposed layer of chalk on the foreshore just north of the golf course in Sheringham and northwest of the lifeboat station, "a resistant shoal which is exposed at low spring tides". On the coast near Robin Friend rare flint ammonites can sometimes be found. Dobson & Taylor note that Robin Friend appears to have been associated with the Robin Hood tradition.
