Most Easterly….

As you might know I live about as far east in Britain as it’s possible to go without getting wet, and so we have a lot of things that are labelled, “Britain’s Most Easterly” often with a sign outside.

Here I present Britain’s Most Easterly amusing sign:

  1. I am very amused by the automatically generated related post; RUNDOWN Britain. They must know Lowestoft; there’s a range of joke postcards of the town that depict derelict buildings and unflattering shots of the harbour(which is a working harbour and not a pretty thing, nor meant to be pretty!)

  2. There’s a book in the unintentional humour of automatically generated posts, I’m sure of it!
    Talking of signs – I always find German ones a rich source of schoolboy sniggering….

  3. this is very funny indeed… but before I could enjoy it, Kevin has to explain me what are groynes… well, the other ones I mean!

  4. I’ll post a pic of a groyne too… we got lots them, but they won’t be replaced because they apparently don’t have any real effects on coastal erosion. This stretch of beach where the nudists go is being washed away and the cliff above is collapsing, but the rest of the beach is actually getting bigger, almost a mile or so of extra land since Roman times.
    A couple of years ago remains were found in Pakefield, in the north of the town that date from 600,000 years ago, right from the paleolithic, making Lowestoft the oldest known place of human habitation in the WHOLE of Europe. The remains are now in the Natural History museum, bones and flint tools alike.
    Heaven knows what will be uncovered as the cliffs further north disappear into the sea; I found a meslithic arrow head on the beach!
