Description: Parkfield, about 1 1/4 m. S. of Lowestoft. Coast erosion at Parkfield south of Lowestoft. The low cliffs along the coast here are composed of Glacial Sands and Gravels, a loosely-aggregated deposit that offers little resistance to the erosive action of the sea. An exceptionally high tide on November 30th 1936 enabled the waves to attack the cliffs on the north side of Beach Street, causing strips of cliff to fall and abandoned houses to collapse into the sea.
