Melford Road High Bank


High Bank is one of Sudbury's hidden architectural gems. It was built in 1926 for Gordon Kipling, the managing director of Vanners silk mills He was an enterprising if somewhat autocratic individual who steered the firm through difficult trading conditions between the two World Wars. He employed local craftsman builder George Grimwood who favoured the Arts and Crafts style with a strong element of Tudor Revival mixed in. The towering chimneys, deep overhang to the peg tiled roof and a two storey gabled entrance are very much Grimwood trademarks. Clearly no expense was spared in its design and construction.
