More about this scene

Caption for Aldeburgh, Beach 1929: Were bathing machines (right) being used as late as 1929? They must have been useful as changing huts, but surely not to make sea-bathing discreet and private, as in Victorian times. Beach furniture includes the winding gear that helped to pull boats onto the shingle (centre).

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!
