The Vulcan Arms - Sizewell - Suffolk


Aldeburgh was once an island between the Alde estuary and Thorpehithe Haven, though now it is linked to the mainland and has been greatly eroded by the sea. Originally a Roman port it was later invaded by the Saxons who gave the town its name, Aldeburc meaning old port. Edward VI granted the town a Charter in 1547 with rights to hold a Wednesday market.

One of the main attractions of the town is the Moot Hall, once situated in the centre of town and the site of an open market, it was built between 1520 and 1540. It is now a museum and well worth a visit if you happen to be in Aldeburgh.
