More about this scene


Caption for Aldeburgh, the Fishing Boats c1955: Something really fascinates a crowd of very curious beach-goers - not just a landing of fish. We will never know what it was! The couple in the foreground are conspicuously lacking in interest, however. Thorpeness is just visible to the north.

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!
