Type and Period (1)
An 825m length of sea bank is visible as an earthwork to the south of Walberswick on 1945 aerial photographs (S1). It runs along the western edge of a channel and some coastal saltmarsh, and would probably have formed part of the system of flood defences in this area. Many of these flood defence banks have their origins in the post-medieval period, so it is quite likely that these do too. They may well have been associated with other banks in the area (see WLB 038 and WLB 046).
