The Society is a registered charity No. 265228 with some 270 members.
Our broad objectives are:
Sudbury is a thriving market town with a long history, starting with an Iron Age settlement sited roughly between the Croft and Stour Street. The development of the present town began in the Middle Saxon period and its written history dates from the Anglo Saxon Chronicle of 797AD.
The town's entry in the Domesday Book in 1086 records a church, a mill and the meadows, which remain such an attractive feature of Sudbury today.
Its evolving story has been shaped by the medieval woollen cloth industry, river navigation, the railway and 19th century silk trade - all helping to generate prosperity and our wonderfully diverse buildings heritage.
As we look to the future in the 21st century, Sudbury faces many changes with the development of a new National Centre for Gainsborough, redevelopment of St Peter's and major proposals for Market Hill, Bellevue Park, Chilton Woods and Hamilton Place.
