Travel Tips for Ipswich

Henry Tooley

by Airpunk

Henry Tooley (in Tudor times, males were always named Henry, Thomas or William – but for some reason never Richard…) was another powerful businessman of Tudor Ipswich. He is best known for his almshouses in foundation street. These were built around 1561, ten years after his death, to give accomodation to the poor and helpless of the city. Several inscriptions dedicated to Tooley can be seen on the walls of the houses, but the largest and best know is the one facing the street with following text: “In powerfull Silence lett great Toolie rest
Whose charitable Deeds bespeak him blest”.

It is not known how much Mr. Tooley had the benefit of the poor in mind rather than his own. One of the requirements for getting a place in the almhouses was to go to nearby St. Mary at the Quay twice a day and pray for the soul of Mr. Tooley. Missing one of the prayers for the third time was a reason to throw you and your family out of the houses. There are still requirements to enter the houses, such as having been an Ipswich resident for a certain time. The prayers for Mr. Tooley are not among them anymore…

Wolsey Theater

For an excellent evening's entertainment the Wolsey Theatre stages some spectacular theatrical plays starring many television personalities. A very popular venue for Ipswich residents and outsiders alike.

Port Area and Customs House

by Airpunk

Ipswich’s former port has lost its significance during the centuries. Although Ipswich was a welathey trading town in the late medeival age as well as in the Tudor era, its significance as a port town vanished when overseas trade began to flourish in London, Bristol and other places in England. A couple of machinery factories settled down in Ipswich during the industrial revolution, but by then it was clear that the port was to become a victim of sand. The port authority building of 1842 was built at a time when Ipswich’s maritime trade days were long gone and the port was only used for local transport. Today, the port has become a marina. But around the old harbour, you’ll still see some interesting spots. For example, Wherry Lane (A wherry is a kind of cart), an alley with old storage houses as well as a building complex (usually called "Isaac Lord complex" after the man who bought it in 1900) which is now used as a restaurant.

Ipswich - County Town of Suffolk

by ratherton

On my return from working abroad for five years, I moved to a new house about 2km from the centre of Ipswich.

"Landmarks - The Orwell Bridge"

The Orwell Bridge is the part of the A14 which cross the River Orwell to the south of the town.

The structure is instantly recognisable to people from the area and it is easily identified from the air when flying into or out of London Stansted airport.

It was built between 1979 and 1982 at a cost of 24 million (pounds sterling). It is almost 1 mile long and at it's peak, is 146 feet about the river. At the time of construction, it was the longest concrete span bridge in the world.

"Old Buildings"

Like many towns in England, there are many old buildings in the town. This wonderful black and white timber building is near the town centre and is in fact the base of the solicitors.

The 2 policemen walking past don't normally wear flourescent jackets, there was probably a football match being played the day this photo was taken.
