Heritage Walks: St Helen’s

The third of the Heritage Walks took place in Ipswich today. The first had a look at the Ipswich marina, and the second at Holywells Park (where the heritage students have been involved in the HLF funded project). Today we visited St Helen’s one of the medieval churches on the east side of the town centre. This was restored in 1835, and extended in 1874-75.

We then crossed Alexandra Park, taking in views of Ipswich and the Orwell Bridge, before having a look round Holy Trinity (1835).
