Flooding in Church Street - a recurrent problem in these low lying streets near the river. This photo may date from the major floods of 1911. In the background the prominent hanging sign of the Bull is just visible with a large bunch of grapes below. This structure was taken eventually taken down because it was a hazard to traffic.

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.
