Walberswick IP18

Just across the River Blyth from Southwold, Walberswick is a sleepy sort of place, with the end-of-the-road feel that characterises so many of these Suffolk coast resorts. Believe it or not, it was once a prosperous port, but it now reposes in well-heeled retirement, a seaside escape with an arty, celebrity undertow, focused on one of the few stretches of sandy(ish) beach along this part of the coast and an annual crabbing festival which takes places in summer among the fishing huts and inlets that cluster around the end of the river.  Sadly, the crabbing event has been cancelled the past two years, due to concerns over safety caused by the volume of people attending, but they hope to re-start it in 2013 with new resources and a fresh look. For the moment, you can make do with a wander down to the water's edge from where you can take the foot ferry across the river to Southwold – whose buildings sit tantalisingly on the horizon a ten-minute walk away.
