There is no other street that has better views in Southwold.

A remarkable, interesting road with superb views and wildlife. It is home to a diverse range of people including artists, builders, fishermen, actors, teachers, professors, script writers and editors, and retirees.

The scenery changes by the minute with huge East Anglian skies and superb sunrises and sunsets.

Before the great flood in 1953 the marshland was tidal, during the flood the water level rose to the door steps of the houses and flooded the cellars at the eastern end. It ends at the boating lake, the famous beach huts and the sea.
