Throwback Thursday: A weekly series where I revisit old photographs.
This week’s image was taken a few years ago on holiday in Suffolk.
If there was ever a village that deserved to be called ‘fantastic’ it is Thorpeness, built at the start of last century by a wealthy Scottish barrister with a penchant for mock Tudor and Jacobean architecture. Glencairn Stuart Ogilvie was a Scottish barrister who made his money designing railways and bought some land from north Aldeburgh to south of Sizewell where he created Thorpeness as a holiday village centred around the Meare.

What a beautiful photo! I especially like the colours and the rays of sunshine as well as the perspective.

I really love your Thorpness photo. We were in Aldburgh a few weeks ago, but didn’t have time to visit other places.

Thanks Georgie . There’s a lot to see around Aldeburgh. We’ve had a couple of holidays in the area, renting a cottage next to Minsmere RSPB reserve.
