Despite the alliterative title, all the pictures in the post weren’t actually taken in the quaint Suffolk coastal village of Walberswick.

The small coastal towns of Southwold and Aldeburgh also feature.

All the pictures do, however, show weathered wood.

This first one was seen outside a fishmonger’s shop in Southwold. It displays prices from long ago in “old money”:

The Viking is one of many boats on the beach at Aldeburgh which may well supply the above fishmonger:

Turning from the boat and walking away from the shore for a couple of hundred yards is Aldeburgh’s Moot Hall, one of the best preserved Tudor public buildings in UK, dating from 1550:

Not far along the coast we come to the little village of Walberswick.

The present St Andrew’s Church in Walberswick is the fourth church on this site, standing in the ruins of the third, sixteenth century, church. When the third church was dismantled, many of its parts, including the porch were reused in the rebuild.

I believe this door dates back to 16th Century:

I think this notice on the door must have been added more recently:

The church, on the outskirts of the village, has some typical Suffolk-style cottages nearby:

This post was prompted by Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge “Weathered, Burned or Burning Wood”.

I’ve just noticed that this particular challenge was for last week.

I’m a few days late, but never mind! The wood will be even more weathered after the few days of wind and rain we’ve had.
