The town water tower than once stood at the head of York Road, next to the reservoir. It probably dated from the year after WWI when the area known as The Wents was developed for housing and the reservoir did not provide a sufficient 'head' of pressure to supply the new housing.

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.
