The Pacy family home
was situated on the east side of Lowestoft High Street on the top of the
low cliff. The rear garden, to the east of the house, was in fact
part of the cliff or "the bank" as Pacy calls it in his testimony.
Until this century it commanded fine views of
the extensive beach and North Sea beyond.
This photograph shows the site
today. In the 18th century the gardens on the cliff at Lowestoft
were landscaped and terraced. This is the view looking east from
the rear of the Pacy house. The conifer trees obscure the view to
the North Sea. They were planted intentionally some years ago to
hide the extensive industrial site which has been built on the beach and
which obscures the view to the sea!
This second photograph was taken
from the foot of the garden looking up "the bank" to the house. The
grey house in the centre is a 19th century extension built on the back
of the Pacy house.
