Over the course of April we are exploring the studies registered with the Society for One-Place Studies featuring those that correspond to the relevant letter of the alphabet.

What is a One Place Study? That is a fine question and rather than me explain, I will refer you to the Society’s informative website. If you are interested in joining us and /or registering a study we of course welcome you. You can find the joining information HERE.

Over the last decade or so Suzie has collated a mass of material relating to the Suffolk town and I am sure she would be delighted to hear from you if you have links to the area. There is a comprehensive website exploring the town further.
