Shingle Street

Shingle Street in Suffolk, is a shingle beach on a quiet stretch of the coast line at the mouth of the River Alde. It was once home to fishermen and river pilots who navigated boats along the River Ore.        Fishermen's cottages and fishing gear The shingle is continually shifting due to the wind and the tides.  This creates shingle banks so that on any visit the landscape can look total different from your last visit. It is not unusual to see rabbits hoping around and seals basking on the shingle. There is a variety of flora and fauna to be found especially in the summer months.   Return to Index
