Description

Ipswich lies on the estuary of the River Orwell in East Anglia.

The town has a rich and varied histroy with continued human habitation dating back to at least the fifth century.

As a result, it has grown up with England from its earliest beginnings and has witnessed untold changes from the Norman Conquest - when the town's name was recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086 as `Gepeswiz' - to the Industrial Revolution, which saw the re-emergence of the town as a thriving port. Ipswich History Tour is a unique insight into the illustrious history of this Suffolk town.

Complete with a map of some of the town's most notable places, readers are invited to follow a tour of some of the stories and characters that make up the history of Ipswich as author Caleb Howgego guides us through the local streets.
