In our final look at Historic England's archive of aerial images spanning the last century, we showcase the changing face of Suffolk's coastal towns and areas.

The organisation has made more than 400,000 pictures available in an online library for the public to view and we've highlighted Lowestoft, Felixstowe, Aldeburgh, Thorpeness, Southwold, Sizewell and Dunwich.

If viewing on a desktop, you can zoom in on all of Historic England's photos.
