The Suffolk coast has a varied landscape including old-fashioned seaside towns, unspoilt fishing villages and rolling farmland. Its 40 miles of Heritage Coast are almost all in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The increasingly fashionable resort of Aldeburgh combines fine restaurants and art galleries against a backdrop of a strong musical tradition, with Benjamin Britten's world-renowned Aldeburgh Festival of Music and the Arts. Not far away is the RSPB nature reserve at Minsmere. Felixstowe retains much of its charm as a seaside destination, while Framlington, dominated by its remarkable Norman castle, was recently voted the number one place to live in the country by Country Life. Local photographer Jon Gibbs captures the magic of this remarkable stretch of coastline with his evocative images with accompanying text.

Suffolk books: History & Heritage
The Suffolk coast has long been a popular destination for visitors, who come to enjoy the tranquillity of resorts like Southwold and Aldeburgh, and the abundant wildlife, especially birds. Designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the district's biological diversity derives from its unique combination of coastal wetlands, heaths, and extensive woods. This book explains how this distinctive landscape - the Sandlings or, to use an older name, the 'Sandlands' - evolved over centuries through the interaction of people and nature. Tom Williamson examines the origins and development of both the wildlife habitats and the wider landscape of fields, farms, towns and settlements. The landscape was firmly shaped by the hand of man. Yet at the same time, the character of local communities has itself been moulded by nature - and in particular, by the poor acid soils and the ever-changing form of the coast.

Suffolk's riverside meadows of the Stour valley remain as beautiful today as when Constable painted them two centuries ago. Similarly, the county's lonely expanses of estuarine marsh, which are a feature of the coast, have a quality that appeal to writers as well as artists. A walk through Flatford and East Bergholt passes one of Constable's most famous viewpoints, and Flatford Mill itself. There is a choice of coastal walks, including routes through Southwold, Shingle Street, Dingle Marshes, Thorpeness and the Shotley peninsula.
