Aldeburgh & Thorpeness Outing

Aldeburgh & Thorpeness Outing

The outing was on the 3rd August 2023. The group consisted of 8 club members and a friend. The journey time was 1 hour 40 minutes (76 miles), to the Reserve. We went to Thorpeness and Aldeburgh and to North Warren National Reserve. We thought the Nature Reserve would have Marsh Harriers, dragonflies and butterflies, but there wasn’t to be seen but we all took photographs of other insects. Thorpeness is a quiet village of about 400 people in the winter, increasing to over 1,600 in the summer holiday season. There are events centred on the Meare at the end of August, it is also popular with day trippers, for its beach, amenities, and sights such as The House in the Clouds. Aldeburgh is a coastal town, north of the River Alde. Its estimated population was 2,276 in 2019. Aldeburgh, has a port and gained borough status in 1529 under Henry VIII. Its historic buildings include a 16th-century moot hall and a Napoleonic-era Martello Tower. The Moot Hall is a Grade I listed timber-framed building,Martello Tower stands leading to the Orford Ness shingle spit. Best Wishes, Ray
