We have a copy of this print in the Museum.
This map is on display in the Museum.
Sources claim that a whole series of coastal maps were ordered by Queen Elizabeth I to clarify what defences were in place in the event of a Spanish invasion. The map below is supposed to be the map for Southwold.
As you can see there is a fort and defensive wall. We wonder how accurate it was!
This last Bank Holiday Monday , The Museum had a stall at the Lions fete .
We had lots of visitors and many people went on to visit the Museum after.
Hopefully, we will repeat this in the future.
We have hundreds of books, photos and documents in our archive collection, which
are available for people to use in their research, just contact the museum to plan your visit.
Since we have opened on April 1st, we have had 726 visitors, 626 adults and 100 children.
106 were local, 316 were on holiday and 304 were day visitors.
A really good start to the season.
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 centuries.
