Can’t write – so cold.
Bright sun but freeeeeeeeeeezing – beautiful, beautiful town.
A stunning, well used pier, fabulous beach, beach huts, superb houses and cottages, galleries, deli’s, wellies, even the milk bottles left on the doorstep for collection look like a still life.
Southwold also has the most handsome lighthouse right in the middle of the town – and the Adnams brewery – any further requests?
During World War II, Southwold gained the status of "fortified town" due to the cannons on Gun Hill, despite the fact that they were filled with concrete and unable to fire.
Southwold therefore became the target of many bombing raids by Germany.
There is little evidence of Southwolds bombing though, as the whole town looks as quaintly beautiful as a cheap Christmas card (and I mean that in a complimentary way).
