Pronunciation of Place Names

Although I am English I have had difficulty with the pronunciation of several East Coast place names (heaven knows how Americans get on). In case of future visits the following may be useful:

No e in Tollesbury (Tolls-bury)

No lls in Hollesley (hoze-ley)

There’s a u in Sea Palling (Sea Pauling)

There’s only an h and a b in Happisburgh (Haze-borough)
