Kessingland is a village in Suffolk, about 4 miles south of Lowestoft and 7 miles north of the resort of Southwold. Palaeolithic and Neolithic implements have been found here and the remains of an ancient forest lie buried on the seabed. Kessingland is a former fishing village. Today the marshland has taken over after shingle beds silted up the estuary. St.Edmund church also fell into ruin until it was rebuilt in the 16th century. Much of the town was swept into the sea in the 19th century. The village was for many years split into two parts 'the Street' and the 'Beach'. In the 1960's a new estate was built, effectively joining the two areas together. The writer Henry Rider Haggard bought a holiday home in Kessingland and tried to stop sea erosion by planting maram grass. Lord of the Manor, George Staunton, planted lupin plants along the cliffs and shingle for the same reason. Both plant species are still in effective abundance today. Holiday camps and caravan sites are situated in and around Kessingland. There is also a Wildlife Park, Africa Alive, on the southern edge of the village. Kessingland has three pubs, The Kings Head and The Queens Head on the High Street and The Sailor’s Home.
