More about this scene

These days, the timber-framed Tudor Moot Hall (moot is Old English for meeting) stands next to the beach. When it was built, it was right in the centre of town. At the time of this photograph, coastal erosion hasn't yet come that close to the building.

Sparked a Memory for you?

If this has sparked a memory, why not share it here?

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!
