Picture, images and photos of Southwold a small town and civil parish on the English North Sea coast in the East Suffolk district of Suffolk. It lies at the mouth of the River Blyth within the Suffolk Coast and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Southwold was mentioned in Domesday Book (1086) as a fishing port, and after the "capricious River Blyth withdrew from Dunwich in 1328, bringing trade to Southwold in the 15th century", it received its town charter from Henry VII in 1489.A fire in 1659 devastated most of the town, creating some open spaces in the town which were never rebuilt. Today this "series of varied and very delightful village greens"[8] and the restriction of expansion by the surrounding marshes, have preserved the town's tidy appearance. Today Southwold still has the feeling of an unspoilt seaside town with colourful beach huts along its front and a small unassuming pier.
