Southwold is a typical English seaside resort town. Its working white lighthouse can be seen above the cottage roofs.
The beach with its colourful beach huts and pier is popular with families during the summer.
The harbour on the banks of the River Blyth is worth a visit. Here you could buy fresh fish from the local fish men who sell part of their daily catch from the North Sea. Herring, cod, sprats are sold in a little wooden hut.
There is not much to do at the harbour apart from watching the local fish men and sailors working in their boats and fishing nets or observing the sea gulls and starlings.
The oldest house in Aldeburgh is the Tudor Moot Hall. It was once located at the centre of the village, now it is situated by the pebbled beach due to sea erosion.
The red bricks and the old oak beams are beautifully combined. The house once the market and court room is now a museum.
Until it disappeared under the sea, the medieval town of Dunwich was one of the most important ports in the Suffolk. The town was situated on sand cliff which were easily eaten by the sea. About a metre of shoreline is taken by the sea every year. Today, a few cottages and Dunwich Greyfriars is all that remains.
The only ruins still standing of the 14th Century Franciscan friary are part of the refectory and the surrounding walls. The entrance to the ruins is under an arched gate (note there are no parking facilities at the site) sheeps, cows and an old farmer are the only residents around the old priory.
Kersey is a quaint little village in a quiet valley in southern Suffolk. I was kindly shown this hidden place by a friend from work. A little stream runs through the main street, creating a ford. There is a good view back over the settlement from the church. There are some beautiful old country houses in the village. One looks as though it is collapsing in the middle! The geese aren't very friendly... but are geese ever friendly?
