There is the online camera with English sea port city of Felixstowe, located on the North Sea coast, in the county of Suffolk.
Live broadcasting is conducted from one of the key attractions of the city – Martello Tower.
The village, well shown on the webcam, got its name because of its proximity to Felixstowe Port.
The settlement on the site of the modern city, where the online stream comes from, existed even before the Normans conquered England.
During the Roman, Anglo-Saxon, Norman, and Medieval periods, Felixstowe is referred to as Walton.
In 1886 the city whose coastal zone is visible in live feed, became a main port. In 1905, one of the longest piers in England was built here.
During the late Victorian period, Felixstowe, which is shown on a live camera, acquired the status of a luxury resort until 1930s.
Nowadays, Felixstowe is a quiet, tranquil resort town where, besides a good beach holiday, you can get acquainted with interesting sights.
This fort is the site of the final battle during the invasion of England in 1667. Here also was the first battle of the Duke of York and the sailors of Albany.
The fort, which has survived to our days, was built in the 17th century and reconstructed in the 19th and 20th centuries. On its territory there are show-reconstruction of military events: Darrell’s Day – in honor of the last invasion, art exhibitions and theatrical performances. Fort Landguard is guarded by the Royal Commission on the Historical Monuments of England and is managed by the Landguard Fort Trust.
The museum has a complex with a reference library, historical maps, archive of photographs and 14 rooms with artifacts discovered during the period of the Roman Empire. You can get to know the history of the city at the Felixstowe Museum. The museum is located in the old building of Landguard Point, between the fort and the port.
This pier was once the longest in England, but during World War II, most of it was dismantled by the Royal Engineers. At the end of the war, the pier was never restored again.
It is at this point of interest that the webcam is located, showing a view of the Felixstowe on the Baltic Live Cam website. The towers are rounded stone structures that were erected to protect the shores of the British Empire in the 1st half of the 19th century.
