More about this scene


Caption for Aldeburgh, Moot Hall 1896: The Moot Hall was built c1540 in the Market Place, but coastal erosion has left it on the seafront. The brickwork on the first floor dates from 1654, and so does the sundial with the inscription 'I only count the sunny hours'. To the right are the White Lion, which now incorporates the battlemented Gothic building next door; then comes an 1870s terrace and the Wentworth Hotel.

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!
