Dunwich is a village and civil parish in Suffolk Coastal, Suffolk, England. In 2001, there were 84 people living in Dunwich.[1]

Dunwich was a large medieval town and port.[2] For hundreds of years, the North Sea has destroyed the land on the coast. This process is called coastal erosion. Because of this, over 90% of the buildings have been lost.[2]
