Shingle Street - Dog Friendly Beach in Alderton, Suffolk


The beach at Shingle Street is wild, exposed and home to a carpet of wild flowers in the late spring and summer.

The waters are hazardous, however, marking the point where the outgoing River Ore meets the North Sea breakers; there is a strong tide run.

The North Weir bell buoy sounds an alarm at the submerged end of Orford Ness’ sand spit.

This area was once a thriving fishing community.

More recently, Barnes Wallis’ bouncing bombs were tested here in World War 2, leading to the demise of the Lifeboat Inn, by the beach.
