Latest museum developments

There has been lavish praise for the newly redesigned exhibits in the museum. Illustrated is an oak angel dating from the 15th century

Rediscovered during recent restoration work at St Edmund’s Church, the ‘Southwold Angel’ would have been originally positioned against a wall, supporting  one of the posts that helped spread the load of the roof. Carved from a single piece of English oak, it is a  remarkable survivor and now on public view for the first time in centuoakangel-overries.
