More about this scene


Caption for Aldeburgh, Esplanade 1896: Holidaymakers enjoy a stroll along the Parade. In the distance is a lookout tower, one of two. While there are recreational activities available on the beach, it is very much a working one, evidenced by the yawls on the shingle.

Memories of Aldeburgh


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!

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!
