Felixstowe hotel

 The Cavendish Hotel built in the 1930's, demolished 1988, nothing built to replace it! Still an empty site next Charlie Mannings         


Felixstowe swim pool

 The Manor House hotel was built in 1877 by Colonel George Tomline, who brought the railway to Felixstowe, also in 1877.  It did have a fabulous open air, sea water swimming pool.  He also created the dock basin which became Felixstowe port. The hotel was not a success and Tomline used it as a summer residence.  It eventually became the site of the current caravan park
