Lowestoft House Prices & Redevelopment
The Lowestoft housing market has proved buoyant over the past couple of years, with price rises in the top ten for rate of increase two years ago and strong, though less impressive, rises over the past twelve months. The latest figures show that the local market has begun to cool as of late. Only time will tell if house prices in Lowestoft can continue to rise in the face of tougher rhetoric and legislation coming from The Bank of England, increasing worry over impending interest rate rises and a general pattern of decline in demand witnessed in the UK market as a whole over the past couple of months.
Lowestoft is gaining more and more credence as an important centre for the development of renewable energy and the Greater Gabbard offshore windfarm currently under construction will eventually become the largest offshore windfarm on Earth.

Having been designated as an enterprise zone in 2011, Lowestoft is currently undergoing a redevelopment program which is set to focus on six areas across Lowestoft and Great Yarmouth.

Lowestoft Tradition & History
Human habitation can be traced back as far in Lowestoft as it can anywhere else in the country. Flint tools were discovered there in 2005 which have been reliably dated to over 700,000 years ago. Lowestoft was continually settled during the Neolithic, Bronze, Iron, Roman and Saxon Ages.
The town of Lowestoft derives its name from an Anglicised corruption of an amalgamation of the Norse words Hlother and Toft, the former of which was a Viking personal name and the latter loosely translating to settlement or homestead.
According to Domesday Book, in 1086, Lothuwistof as it was then called, consisted of 16 houses, three families, ten smallholders and three slaves. From the Mediaeval period onward Lowestoft boasted a large scale fishing industry and continued to be identified as a fishing settlement right through to the 20th Century.
The fishing industry, and particularly the Port of Lowestoft were offered significant boosts by the construction of the Lowestoft to Reedham railway line in the 19th Century. Other industries, such as engineering, also began to develop and grow almost exponentially as a result of this innovation. Lowestoft soon developed into an extremely popular seaside resort. Later, due to the importance of its engineering industry and role as a naval base, Lowestoft was heavily bombed during both World Wars.
The initial pair of lighthouses in Lowestoft were constructed in 1609, on the foreshore and candlelit, to give warning of the dangerous sandbanks around the coast. By lining up the two lights, vessels could navigate the, now non-existent, Stamford Channel. They were rebuilt in 1628 and again in 1676. It was at this time that one light was moved up onto the cliffs above the Denes – the location of the present lighthouse – to assist vessels further out to sea. The remaining ‘Low Light’ was discontinued in 1706 following sea encroachment, but re-established in 1730 in a form that could be easily moved in response to further changes to the Stamford Channel and shoreline. It was finally discontinued in August 1923. The ‘High Light’ tower was rebuilt as the present lighthouse in 1874 with the intention of displaying an electric light, but then opened paraffin oil was used instead; it was not until 1936 that it was electrified. The lighthouse, along with two cottages originally used by lighthouse keepers, is a Grade II listed building.
