RSA Heritage Network: Suffolk’s Diverse Heritage


Heritage Futures will be discussing the RSA Heritage Network questions in the context of ‘Suffolk Diverse Heritage‘. Heritage in Suffolk is supported by two key bodies: the Suffolk Strategic Heritage Forum, and the Ipswich Heritage Forum. We will be considering the challenges facing heritage in Suffolk, and what we can do to support, conserve, develop and interpret heritage more widely across the county.

There will be two short presentations: one on The Hold, the new heritage centre for Suffolk (funded by HLF), and the other on museums in Suffolk.

All are welcome.

One thought on “RSA Heritage Network: Suffolk’s Diverse Heritage”

  1. I chair the Excelsior Trust based in Lowestoft, which operates the most authentically restored sailing smack in England. She operates today mainly as a sail training vessel for disadvantaged young people. I am a published author and historian of the Royal Norfolk & Suffolk Yacht Club, the Great Yarmouth Yacht Club and the International 14 dinghy fleet. Removal of Waveney archives to Ipswich renders them almost totally inaccessible to Waveney residents generally – and utterly inaccessible to the old or infirm. I suggest that moving the contents of Lowestoft Record Office to The Hold is an entirely insensitive use of local heritage and one which in my opinion will guarantee almost no further donations from the area to Suffolk Record Office. No-one wants to lose their heritage.
