We have a small range of local interest books, many researched and published by the Museum.

Newly Published

streetnames“Halesworth Street Names and Places” by Derek Newby
£7.99 plus P&P

With over 112 pages, illustrated with over sixty historical and modern images, the book has taken well over two years to compile, but a lifetime of memories have gone into it. Derek was eager to produce more than just a reference book.  Why would you once have found a heavy metal chain with a large tin disc hanging round the Market Square pump? Who had a telephone exchange in their front room and where? Who first introduced milk bottles to Halesworth? The answers are all in the book.
