I absolutely loved this book. I’ve lived in Felixstowe since my marriage in 1975. We used to take our two boys over the ferry to see Bawdsy Manor and walk round the point and see the radar towers. We loved it and still do. Thank you for this amazing book. I love all your books. Please write many more.
