    Tourdescription About the audio tour

    Enjoy an easy walk along the coast starting down on Orford Ness, then up as far as the Moot Hall. Find out about the different ways that the people along this coast have made their living from the sea. On the way, we will hear about Elephants having a paddle, see a dangerous windmill, hear about a private literary festival, meet the Uptowners & Downtowners, hear about the dangers that lurk on this tiny bit of the East Coast and meet a dog that was so loved that they made him twice... What more could you want in a short walk?
