Postcards of the Past


Lowestoft, Suffolk


Lowestoft is a town on the North Sea coast of England in the county of Suffolk. On the edge of the Norfolk Broads, it is the most easterly UK settlement. A port town, it developed out of the fishing industry and as a seaside resort with wide, sandy beaches. As its fisheries declined, oil and gas exploitation in the southern North Sea in the 1960s added to its development. These roles have since declined, but it is developing as a regional centre of the renewable energy industry.
