Fishing boats at Alderburgh

A commercial fishing fleet is now a thing of the past at Aldeburgh.  Skipper Dean Fryer explains why:  ‘Bureaucracy, paperwork, over-the-top EU  quotas and the rising costs of simply fuelling and maintaining a boat has driven most fishermen out of business.’

Nevertheless, fishing seems to be a part of the DNA for many.  The high tide line along the beach is marked by a sprinkling of small boats and, behind them, a row of black fishermen’s huts.  Typically a catch might include sole, skate, bass, flounder, lobster and/or crab.

The shingle beach shelves steeply and ‘vintage’ tractors are used to haul the boats to safe dry land.

View from the Tate

The Tate in the title refers to the Tate Gallery at St Ives.  The picture was taken from a window in the restaurant on the top floor.  I was attracted by the pattern of  activity on the beach below and wondered what L S Lowry might have made of the scene!
