A Trip to Snape

During a visit to Ipswich a small drive took me to a beautiful area of Suffolk called Snape Maltings.

Snape Maltings on the banks of the River Alde at Snape is a set of converted buildings from a barely malting which was used in the brewing of beer.  Now the converted buildings are better known as an arts complex best known for its concert hall, which is one of the main sites of the annual Aldeburgh Festival.

Given more time and I would have loved to walk around the Alde Estuary which is known locally for the abundance of wildlife.

The few pictures i’ve captured may not impress with the beauty of the area but despite the gloom of the day it was so peaceful and beautiful.

I’ve included the below map so you can get an idea of the beauty of the area.  If you are ever nearby pay it a visit you won’t regret it.
