Suffolk Local History Council co-ordinates and disseminates information
relating to county-wide local history societies, local genealogical
societies and other societies which, like our own, have a wider remit,
but which incorporate an interest in history and heritage. A quarterly
journal, Suffolk Review, and a Newsletter are published. The former
contains articles on a wide range of Suffolk interests, past and
present; the latter includes details of 'happenings' at the three
Suffolk Record Offices (Ipswich, Bury, Lowestoft), local 'Bookshelf'
reviews, short articles on the wider national local history scene, and
One of the main events of the SLHC calendar is the annual local history
weekend at Belstead House Adult residential College near Ipswich. The
next one, to be held Friday 2 May to Sunday 4 May 2008 is on the theme
'Suffolk Buildings -- Castle to Cottage' with individual speakers and a
visit to one of the county's notable historic monuments.
Membership of the SLHC is open to individuals as well as groups and
societies. Application should be made to the Hon Secretary, SLCH, 2
Wharfedale Road, Ipswich, IP1 4JP. You can also visit the
for more enlightenment.
