Melford Road 10-12


A pair of imposing detached villas. They share a certain superficial similarity, particularly at eaves and roof level, but the design of the projecting bays is very different. Probably built by Clement Dennington who also built and lived in No 22. No 10 has a connection with the Smith family, still trading at their jewellers in North Street, whilst No 12 was the home of the baker Frederick Ulmer who was hounded out of Sudbury in 1916 by rumours that he was a German spy. The 'proof' was that he had offered 5/- for a PoW postcard from Germany.
