    I think this is produced the wrong way round. If viewed from Kirkley the mill should be to the right of the church. The altar end of the church should be to the right (East).

    argued that
    "The first essential, so it seems today, is to study the living culture, to know its habits of thought and the functions of its institutions" and that "the only way in which we can know the significance of the selected detail of behavior is against the background of the motives and emotions and values that are institutionalized in that culture."//[//124]
    ...
    argued that
    "the whole determines its parts, not only their relation but their very nature,"[125] cultures, likewise, are more than the sum of their traits."[126] Just as each spoken language draws very selectively from an extensive, but finite, set of sounds any human mouth can make, she concluded that in each society people, over time and through both conscious and unconscious processes, selected from an extensive but finite set of cultural traits which then combine to form a unique and distinctive pattern."[127]
    A culture, like an individual, is a more or less consistent pattern of thought and action. Within each culture there comes into being characteristic purposes not necessarily shared by other types of society. Each people further and further consolidates its experience, and in proportion to the urgency of these drives the many elements of behavior take more and more congruous shape. When assimilated by a well-integrated culture, the most ill-assorted acts become characteristic of its particular goals, often by the most unlikely metamorphoses.[128]

    people would:
    "arrive then at a more realistic social faith, accepting as grounds of hope and as new bases for tolerance the coexisting and equally valid patterns of life which mankind has created for itself from the raw materials of existence."[129]. This of course is the goal of a truely international society.

    These humanising structures came together in Lowestoft financed by the heavy borrowing of Samuel Peto, to produce a self-reliant, self-justifying culture which thrived for half a century, between 1870 to 1920, but which was unsustainable in the long term because of the limited productivity of the North Sea and North Atlantic fish stocks, and the growth of a global tourist industry.

    In summary, there were 90 air raids when bombs were dropped on the town and another 96 where bombs fell, for the most part relatively harmlessly, on the surrounding villages and fields.
    All aspects of Lowestoft at war were recorded by local eyewitnesses, Ford Jenkins, photographer, and his journalist friend Charles Goodey. Both were in the Royal Observer Corps and published their photographic and diary records in 'Port War' (1946). This was re-published in 1984 (ISBN 0 9507775 5 2).

    Even earlier than the map is the next photograph of properties 173 and 174 as they appeared to the north beyond the undeveloped North Common about 1870. Between 1870 and 1886 the common was developed as a public park, which was opened in May 1874. The ruined flint wall in the foreground is the remains of the 'Town Cross' marked on the 1886 map at the southern entrance to Bellevue Park.

    The Sparrow's Nest appears on the OS map of north Lowestoft in 1886 as Cliff Cottage. It occupies the building footprint of the modern café and naval museum below the eastern cliff boundary of Bellevue Park. Although it has been greatly modified over the years, the remaining southern wall is characterised by pointed-arched windows, which are in the Gothic revival style. In the next photograph, probably taken in the 1920s, the full Gothic character of the original building is revealed.

    Robert Sparrow the elder became connected with Lowestoft through a commercial interest in 'fish houses' on the north beach and his 'summer property', called Cliff Cottage, sited just below the cliff at the northern edge of the town. Cliff Cottage was probably an artisan's house, which was gentrified by Robert II Sparrow at the turn of the 18th century. By the end of the 19th century the building, considerably modified and enlarged, became known locally as 'Sparrows Nest'.

    North Sea.
    Casting nets by hand, relying on muscle-powered oars and sails, was replaced, first by the technologes of steam and then by oil. By the time oil powered boats began to dominate the fishing grounds as far afield as Iceland and the Bering Sea in the 1950s, the fish stocks of the United Kingdom's territorial waters were in decline andt here was a mad rush to design bigger and bigger boats to hunt fewer and fewer fish farther afield. Eventually, this madness, which ignored the ecological limiting factor of overfishing, exacerbated by European Union system of country quotas, led to the demise of the Lowestoft fleet in the 1990s. A similar fate overtook the fishing industries of Yarmouth, Hull and Grimsby at around the same time. While global catches peaked in the late 1980s, the maximum catches occurred earlier in those parts of the world where industrial fishing developed first. Thus, peak fish occurred in the mid-1970s in the North Atlantic, exploited by European and North American fisheries. In the southern Atlantic, where the industrialization of fishing started later, peak fish occurred in the mid-1990s. It is from this perspective that the fate of Lowerstoft's fishing culture stands as a model for the global profligate unsustainable use of natural resources.
