  • Very interesting site, as a kid I used to play in and on the 'block houses' in the Mile Field between Blythburgh and Walberswick.

  • I am researching the WW2 defences of Southwold and surroundings for a biographer whose latest project is an artist who lived in Southwold at that time. I have found this site extremely informative and it has given me valuable details about various aspects of the war in Suffolk at that time.

    VP Team: many thanks for your comments, and we are glad that the website has helped!

  • Visited Walberswick on 3rd March with a class of Year 5 children from London. Lucky enough to have David and Philip with us to do the Defences Walk, thanks. They made it really alive and real for the children. The sound effects and artefacts were brilliant and despite the biting East Wind the children had a really great afternoon.

  • Hi Great website,
    we have developed three audio ipod walks across the NNR at Walberswick for Natural England.Which may also be of interest. They feature narration sound effects and interviews with experts and enthusiasts such as NE Adam Burrows, local Robin Fournel, Marcus Gladwell and local residents.
    The walk from Hoist Covert to Shingle Beach touches on the coastal defences and flooding.
    They will soon be available from Natural Englands
    website www.naturalengland.org.uk and our website portal www.audioguide2go.com

    VP Team: Many thanks for your message. I will pass it on to our landscape expert (Dr Rob Liddiard), who may well be in touch.

  • A very interesting site. There is a link now from the Parish Council site. It would be good to see their site included in Tourist Information.
    VP Team: Thank you for this suggestion. We have now added a link to our website.

  • I wanted to say that I've just discovered your website and I'm very impressed. The animations are excellent.
    I shall try to find some of the remains of the defences when I\'m next there in May.
