    Problems caused to the sea wall at Aldeborough by indiscriminate parking by some people were well publicised a couple of years ago. As a result of the abuse, camping overnight was banned in all of the sites owned or managed by Suffolk Coastal Council - a pity because they have been one of the most helpful of all councils in recent years in making provision for motorhomes.

    For daytime parking in the area, Suffolk Coastal council have a specific caravan, motorhome & coach page on their web site Here.

    I did once. Went to buy a plane there. There was actually a plane maker there once. "Not a lot of people know that."

    Shadow was the name.

    I didn't know that, where did he fly them from. I have seen an old chap who straps this engine to his belt with a hand glider and away he goes.:flyingwelcome:

    There is a nice site a few hundred yards from the town. Or just up the coast at Sizewell the Vulcan Arms is a CL nice right on the beach with great music on a Friday night. There are many more within earshot of Aldeburgh. If you let us know what sort of camping you want maybe able to help.:thumb: But as GJH says, off site camping is no longer permitted, but some still do it.

    ta for the link Graham .. :thumb:

    just had a look and they have this entry which is just down the road from us...

    Bawdsey: Bawdsey Quay Picnic Site (free).

    what they have neglected to say is that is there is a height barrier of 2.3mt and a sign saying 'No Overnight Parking'..

    Google Map

    However, about 100mts further on you can park in the lay-by next to the river..

    I agree, this should be privileged information, now Jim's front garden could be the only place left. :Wink:

    I got in touch with Suffolk Coastal council and, as a result, they have put a note of the height restriction on the web page.
