We do not have any images of barges operating close to Sudbury - this fine image shows a pair of lighters moving up the Navigation from Flatford lock, possibly bound for the Quay at Sudbury.

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.
