Thorpeness

 
 

An unusual place.  Sir Nikolaus notes that it extremely rare to find a planned seaside resort but here one is.  Mostly built between 1910 and 1937 and larger than life (or mostly fantasy, depending on your viewpoint).  Various places are identifiable from the text (shown with page number) but some of those listed are just road names so some of the pictures are just views.  A popular place to visit and mooch about.  Boating on the Meare is a pleasant activity on a Summer’s afternoon.


The House in the Clouds is available for rental.
