Further along Crag Path is the former red and white brick watchtower (centre). On the right is a later extension to the Jubilee Hall of 1889. The white bow-fronted house is Mizpah of 1877, and beyond is High House of 1879.

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!
