Caption for Aldeburgh, Slaughden Quay 1894: A young lad balances precariously inside a small boat, whilst men work on the mast of a vessel moored starboard side to the jetty.

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!
