Visit Kessingland and the surrounding villages and stay in bed & breakfast accommodation:
Kessingland, Suffolk. Another seaside village whose church tower has served as a landmark to generations of sailors. There are too many caravans and the holidaymaker seeking peace would be advised to go on to Dunwich or Covehithe. However, it is not without some charm. The tower of the Church of St Edmund was built by Richard Russell of Dunwich who had also designed that at Walberswick. Inside, there is a l4th-century font, one of Suffolk's finest, with excellent carvings on both the shaft and the bowl (both octagonal).
The heroes of Kessingland have been its life-boatmen who saved 144 lives in the period 1869 — 1936.
