Moot Hall Area - Aldeburgh

52 Walks with My Camera in 2010 - Week 26

I'm late putting up my photos for week 26, but here they are at last.
This time I visited one small area of Aldeburgh, I will return another week to show you more. This town is know as 'a place of energy and inspiration for music and the arts'. Aldeburgh is a coastal town in Suffolk, East Anglia, Notable for its Blue Flag shingle beach and fisherman huts where freshly caught fish are sold daily, The Aldeburgh Yacht Club, which thrives mainly in the summer, and its two fish and chip shops. The internationally renowned Aldeburgh Festival of arts, which takes place at nearby Snape Maltings. The festival was created in 1948 by the resident and acclaimed composer Benjamin Britten.
A popular weekend destination, particular attractions are the ancient Moot Hall (where the town council still meets today), Napoleonic-era Martello tower to the south, sheltered yachting marina at Slaughden, and two family run shops serving fish and chips, one of which is often cited as among the best fish and chip shops in the UK.

The first two photos are of the old Moot Hall.

More from this lovely town later in the year.
