Aldeburgh, The Beach 1906

More about this scene


Caption for Aldeburgh, The Beach 1906: The ever-changing coastline has very much dictated the fortunes of Aldeburgh, but one thing which has not changed is the activity of local fishermen, who park their boats on the shingle bank which runs along the beach. Here, Edwardian bathers are braving the chilly East coast waters.

Memories of Aldeburgh


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!
