The Military Walk
Kirkley and all of Lowestoft was gravely affected by both WW1 and WW2. Kirkley was one of the first places in the UK to be hit by bombs from the air when it was attacked by zeppelins in WW1. We were attacked by air and sea in both wars and the fear of land invasion started here. This military trail takes you around Kirkley and if you look closely, the wars are still with us.
