There’s a thousand years of history in Ipswich, in its streets, its old buildings and in the river.
People have been sailing from the Waterfront, worshipping in the churches and manufacturing life’s essentials since the 7th Century. To discover some of this history the Ipswich Society are organising a ‘walkabout’ around the town centre on Tuesday evening, 14th July starting at 7.30 pm from the Tourist Information Centre in St. Stephen’s Lane.
The Ipswich Society are the local Civic Society, a group of over 1000 people who care for the town, its past, present and future. The tour will visit ancient buildings but will also look at proposals for the future, ideas like ‘Turning the Town Round’ and reorganising the layout of the Cornhill.
The hour long stroll will be light-hearted but informative, an exploration of the obvious with the history you may not know. A chance to look at buildings you pass every day and to see something new, different and unusual. To book please phone (or call in) the Tourist Information Centre, St Stephen’s Lane, Ipswich, 01473 258070.
