This engraving was made from a drawing by Gainsborough Dupont, the famous artist's nephew and pupil. It dates from the last quarter of the 18th century and it shows a lime kiln, possibly alongside the "Allen cut" which served the brick making, lime burning and malting complex owned by the Allen family.

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.
