This engraving takes in a vast sweep of the Sudbury townscape. The old Belle Vue house is prominent on the RH side and the artist, CJ Greenwood, dedicated the picture to the owner Edmund Stedman. The railway opened in 1847 - this must date from shortly afterwards.

The market town of Sudbury, on the borders of Suffolk and Essex, has a long and fascinating history. Much of the way of life in the town since the invention of photography has been caught on camera. The Sudbury Museum Trust has developed this website to show and provide information on a selection of these photographs.
