The Book of Haughley
The Book of Haughley
  • Description

Haughley lies at the head of the Gipping Valley and was one of the furthest points accessible by boat from the sea at Ipswich. It was close to the main Roman road from Colchester to the North, and today it sits beside the main trunk road from Felixstowe and Harwich to the Midlands. The railway junction at Haughley was where mail from all over Britain merged on its way to Harwich and the continent. Today, nearby Stowmarket station and fast trains to London make it an attractive commuter base.

The Haughley History Forum was formed in early 2004, when Celia and Howard Stephens, pursuing their interest in local history, realised that recording Haughley’s history was too big a task to tackle without help. Many of the memories of the past century are rapidly fading, and the group decided to records as much as possible from original sources, before it was too late! 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 Haughley and its surrounding parish.
