Welcome to Corner Street – the home of a new easterly publishing venture. Based in the heart of Suffolk, Corner Street aim to produce quality and creative publications, celebrating East Anglian heritage and literature.


Our very first publication is the comprehesively revised and extended, newly illustrated and redesigned edition of The Grit: The Story of Lowestoft's Beach Village by Dean Parkin and Jack Rose.


This bestselling local history classic, telling the story of Lowestoft’s lost fishing village, has been out of print for nearly 20 years. The long-awaited new edition of The Grit features 250 photographs, extra interviews and an additional chapter updating the story.


Outstanding Lowestoft artist Paula White has contributed the evocative cover and chapter illustrations and the book has been re-imagined by design agency Silk Pearce.


The book was launched on 21 September 2019 at Christ Church Halls in Lowestoft as part of the Heritage Open Days events.
