Score Draw: The Alleyways of Lowestoft

Wandering around some of the ancient Lowestoft alleyways known locally as 'Scores.'
Many featured long-gone inns and public houses, some of which entertained figures as historically important as King George II and Oliver Cromwell.

An information plaque describes how one (Maltster's Score) had 'an evil reputation for robberies.' Indeed, many run behind some of the town's shabbier streets, littered with empty cider bottles and condom packets, so it may not be the wisest idea to go walking around here at night these days, either. The sculptures to be seen in the Scores are known as the Maritime Art Trail, and are courtesy of an artist called Paul Amey.
