Walberswick



This village has a lovely stretch of sands and dunes bordering the North Sea, plus the River Blyth to the North Boundary and marshes†and across the river is Southwold. There are some nice cottages and 'artist aware' fishermans huts often featured on postcards etc. The snag is how long can Walberswick survive with rising sea levels, I have been turned back on a few occasions over the years because the carpark is flooded.

Here is†Walberswick Church, another of those churches in this area which was once quite large 124' X 60' and over the centuries has been reduced in size, the new smaller church measuring 64' X 20' was built at the end of the 17c at a cost of £291 8s 9d†

A view of Southwold Harbour from Walberswick, a leaden sky never did come to anything more! The carpark can be prone to sea ingress on very high tides but there are some lovely riverside walks along the River Blyth. There is a nearby Nature Reserve running parallel with the beach but if anyone feels really fit and healthy a walk to Dunwich and back is rewarding
