Photographer's Note

This once large wooden hull boat was once sailing these rivers and sea, now it has been forgotten and lies next to all the bright modern boats and yacht's and it decaying by the day. If you look close you can see a lone pigeon roosting in the boat.
We view over the River Deben to Bawdsey.

Bawdsey is a village and civil parish in Suffolk, eastern England. Located near Felixstowe, it had an estimated population of 340 in 2007.

Bawdsey Manor is notable as the place where radar research took place early in World War II, before moving to Worth Matravers near Swanage in May 1940, and from there to Malvern, Worcestershire in 1942. Bawdsey had both Chain Home and Chain Home Low early warning radar stations during World War II.

The World War Two defences constructed around Bawdsey Point have been documented. They included a number of pillboxes, landmines and flame fougasse installations. The beaches were protected with extensive barriers of scaffolding. Info Wiki.
