  • Description

This is another book in the Halsgrove Parish History series, reminding us of the people and events that have made our communities what they are today - celebrating the past and providing a stepping stone to the future.

The photographs in this unique volume, many of them previously unpublished, are a vital record of the history and inhabitants of this ancient settlement brought together from across the community.

Bramford is situated just over two miles north-west of Ipswich, the county town of Suffolk, and has been in existence for well over 1,000 years. The River Gripping has always been central to the lives of the people and the name of the village suggests that it began life as a favoured crossing point. The route of the ancient Colchester to Norwich Roman road passes through the parish.

St Mary's church, nestling in the trees beside the river, is naturally the oldest building, dating in part from the thirteenth century, and its majestic slender spire can be seen for many miles from every direction.

Early in the nineteenth century Bramford was mainly agricultural, with nearly all the inhabitants living in the main street and working on the farms. The coming of the railway, however, heralded a period of expansion and additional employment, primarily from two industrial companies who pioneered the UK fertiliser industry.

All this, and much more, is detailed in this 160 page book, copiously illustrated throughout with over 200 historic photographs of the places and people who have made up the thriving community of Bramford and its surrounding parish.
