The abandoned ruins of medieval Dunwich's Saint Nicholas Church likely slid into the ocean around the year 1700.

These ruins may belong to medieval Dunwich's Saint Katherine's Chapel, which likely fell into the sea between 1550 and 1650 after the city was abandoned.

The medieval port city of Dunwich was partially flooded and swept to sea beginning in the 1200s. This map shows where the ruins sit now, in relatively shallow water off the Suffolk coast.

As coastal erosion ate away at Dunwich, the town was gradually abandoned. The ruins of the medieval town's All Saints Church eventually fell into the sea as the cliffs nearby crumbled.
