Writing by the Sea – A New Series of Writer’s Walks on the Suffolk Coast


The Sea Spell – The Lost City of Dunwich

For some, Dunwich is where time stopped. It’s one of several Suffolk villages and towns made and later destroyed by the sea – it’s an evocative space for writers to explore, with echoes of far-flung pasts and unimaginably distant futures.  

Workshop leader, award-winning writer Liz Ferretti, got an idea for a novel set in the future here. You’ll come away with skills to read ancient landscapes, to hone and develop ideas, and a Creating Atmosphere workbook.

This, the third and final Writer's Walk this summer, is for writers looking for inspiration in past landscapes. There are links to the Templars, a ruined monastery, and clues to the great sea surge that destroyed this important port – the source of the Red Herring – while the fish and chip restaurant behind the beach is built above the site of an 11th century hostelry. 

Where: Meet from 10am at Dunwich Beach Car Park, IP17 3EN.

The workshop runs from 10.30am – 2.30pm

N.B. This is the car park by the beach in Dunwich village, NOT the National Trust Dunwich Heath car park. Voluntary parking charges apply.

Facilities: Flora Tea Room offer fish and chips and other refreshments, and there is a pub close by, as well as accessible toilets. Maximum three miles walking on shingle, across farmland and woodland. Please dress appropriately for a day on the Suffolk coast.

“The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever.” Jacques Cousteau
