Caption for Aldeburgh, The Lifeboat 'City Of Winchester' 1903: Aldeburgh lifeboats have always been launched straight from the shingle beach. Four years earlier, an Aldeburgh lifeboat suffered its worst disaster, capsizing with the loss of seven lives.

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!
