These delightfully colourful houses with their balconies overlook the shingle beach at Aldeburgh, on the Suffolk coast. Two lookout towers can be seen to the right of the picture. The oldest one, in the foreground, has a spectacular spiral staircase. The shingle beach is immediately to the right of the lookout towers. Over the centuries quite a bit of the town has been lost to the sea.

Framlingham Castle in Suffolk was originally built around the start of the 13th century, and was one of the first curtain wall castles in this country, having no central keep, but simply an outer wall with numerous towers. Internally, a number of buildings were constructed against the wall.

Southwold, on the Suffolk Heritage Coast, is one of the gems of the English seaside. There are some beautiful Georgian houses on the cliff top towards the southern end, while the lighthouse is situated back in the town itself. Much of the town was destroyed in a fire in 1659, and this left many open spaces which have now been grassed over, providing several delightful large greens. The town, which overlooks Sole Bay - the scene of a major sea battle with the Dutch in 1672 - is also home to the Adnams brewery.
