Lowestoft

Lowestoft has had a fishing industry since the Middle Ages. The building of the harbour and railway in the 19th century meant that fish could be easily landed and transported to other parts of the country. The heyday of the fishing industry in Lowestoft was between 1870 and the start of WW1 but it had collapsed completely by the 1960s.
