The history of Aldeburgh

The name ‘Alde Burgh’ means "old fort" in Old English, although the original structure has long since been swallowed by the North Sea due to coastal erosion, along with much of the medieval town.

By the early 16th century Aldeburgh had started to come into its own as a port, with an extensive fisheries industry paying for the construction of many large buildings in the town. Unfortunately, increasingly wild coastal weather and erosion saw the area gradually enter a period of decline by the 17th century, before its fortunes were reversed by the arrival of mass tourism.

Things to do and see around Aldeburgh

The town’s history is well served by Aldeburgh Museum, at Moot Hall, one of the most impressive timber-framed public buildings in England. Dating from the first half of the 16th century, the Grade I listed building contains exhibitions about life in Aldeburgh through the ages, and still holds Town Council meetings today.

Aldeburgh is home to the northernmost of England’s Martello Towers, small defensive forts that were built across the British Empire during the 19th century. Aldeburgh’s tower is of unique quatrefoil design, and is the only surviving building of the fishing village of Slaughden, which was gradually washed away by the North Sea over many years, and gone by 1936. The Martello Tower is now used for residential purposes, as is another of Aldeburgh’s unusual buildings – a four-storey windmill at the southern end of the town known as Fort Green Mill.

Aldeburgh is rightly proud of its association with the composer Benjamin Britten. Britten moved to the town in 1942 and lived there until his death in 1976, and is buried in the churchyard of St Peter and St Paul's Church in Aldeburgh, but his influence is greater than simply having lived here.

In 1948, Britten helped to found the Aldeburgh Festival of Music and the Arts, a festival devoted mainly to classical music that takes place each June in the Snape Maltings Concert Hall. The festival has become an internationally celebrated event, with recognised composers and conductors flocking to Aldeburgh to celebrate their work and that of the most widely known classical composers in history.

Another important aspect of life in and around Aldeburgh is of course the wonderful scenery. Set within the Suffolk Coast and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Aldeburgh is perfect for walking, cycling, fishing, bird-watching and every other type of nature-based pastime that the English countryside is famed for. The area covers ancient woodland and forests, wildlife-strewn riverbanks, salt marsh, heathland, mudflats, reed beds and shingle beaches along 60 miles of the Suffolk coast.
