Walberswick is a village in Suffolk, 3 miles from Blythburgh.

It is a small port on the River Blyth, with a passenger ferry, a rowing boat, connecting it with the larger Southwold.

In the 15th century and a little later, Walberswick was one of the most thriving communities on the Suffolk coast.

St. Andrew`s Church is built partly within the ruins of the earlier church, which was dismantled in the 17th century, when Walberswick`s prosperity began to wane.

Several famous names from the arts, literature and entertainment worlds have houses here. Perhaps the first to retire here was Charles Rennie Mackintosh.
