Site of Deserted Village of Northeye
Built on a small rise in land the small town was once located next to a tidal inlet called the Merefleet and was important enough to be an associate member of the Cinque Ports. Its demise was due to the retreat of the sea which headed south as the shingle barrier headed eastwards and the inning of the marshes reduced the scour of the streams that fed the inlet turning the land between into a salt marsh before that too was reclaimed. The town, which included its own chapel whose foundations were still visible in the 1850s, had ceased to exist by the beginning of the fifteenth century with only the earthworks still visible to remind anybody of its former existence. The higher ground around Barnhorn can be seen to the left.
