About This Book

If we scratch beneath the surface of Suffolk, there are numerous surprising tales which bring to life the rich history of this county. This book narrates the devastating effect on the county following the dissolution of the monasteries, the decline of the once-booming cloth trade, drastic erosion of the coastline and the disappearance of large country houses and estates. It also tells of the rise of the chic Victorian seaside resorts, the captains of the brewing and iron industries who put Suffolk firmly on the post-industrial revolution map, and the key wartime role the county played over many centuries. No corner of Suffolk is left unturned in this small book with a huge punch!
