Aldeburgh, Esplanade 1894

More about this scene


Caption for Aldeburgh, Esplanade 1894: This view looks south from one of the two lookout towers on the beach. The yawls parked on the beach were organised into two companies, the 'Up-towners' and 'Down-towners', with their respective headquarters at the lookout towers. Intermingled with the boats are bathing machines, evidence of Aldeburgh's growing tourist industry.

Memories of Aldeburgh


In the 60's the tower was derelict but us children could get across the very unsafe wooden bridge across the moat and explore the inside. Very dangerous with rotten floors and deep drops!

This little girl could be me! I spent many happy hours playing with my model boat here, while visiting my grandmother, Ruth Knowles from Fawcett Road in the town. What happy memories!
