Ipswich, the county town of Suffolk, lies on the estuary of the River Orwell in East Anglia. The town has a rich and varied history with continued human habitation dating back to at least the fifth century. As a result, it has grown up with England from its earliest beginnings and has witnessed untold changes from the Norman Conquest – when the town’s name was recorded in the Little Domesday Book of 1086 as Gepeswiz – to the Industrial Revolution, which saw the re-emergence of the town as a thriving port.


In Ipswich Through Time, local historian Caleb Howgego provides a glimpse into the fascinating history of Ipswich. Through a series of ninety photographic comparisons, the author contrasts Victorian and Edwardian Ipswich with the modern town. We discover the recent history of Ipswich, uncovering along the way some of the dramatic changes the town has seen over the last century, and the features that remain startlingly similar.
