More about this scene

A crowded rowing boat makes its way to the muddy shore. Stretching away to the south is the Alde, passing the Martello Tower on its left; it runs adjacent to the shore for a further ten miles, a quite remarkable feat considering that the sometimes violent sea is so close.

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!
