More about this scene

This view was taken from the first floor of the present Regatta Restaurant. In the distance Crabbe Street, named after the local poet the Rev George Crabbe, who inspired the work of Benjamin Britten, leads down to the beach and the lifeboat station. The East Suffolk Hotel (the white building, centre right) is now the Aldeburgh Festival Office.

Other Memories from 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!
