Aldeburgh buildings [1]
The South Lookout on Crag Path was built circa 1830 as a lookout tower to assist shipping along the North Sea coast. Constructed in rendered brick, there is an external stair and a cantilevered viewing platform with a 20th century glazed porch. The lookout was used as a coastguard post before falling into disuse in the mid-20th century. Now used as artistic space, hosting exhibitions. LinkExternal link
Aldeburgh is a coastal town, some 20 miles north east of Ipswich and 23 miles south of Lowestoft. Although there are traces of Roman and Saxon occupation, Aldeburgh was a little fishing village until the shifting coastline opened up a sheltered harbour which became a thriving ship building centre. As the River Alde silted up the town’s fortunes waned, and it survived as a fishing village until the 19th Century when it became a fashionable seaside resort. A classical music festival takes place at nearby Snape Maltings each year.
