Wow, Ipswich is just BURSTING AT THE SEAMS WITH GHOSTS!

Ipswich is the county town of Suffolk and it’s believed to be one of the oldest town’s in England…

You’ll find it’s absolutely stacked in history!

It’s located in the south of the county on the estuary of the River Orwell.

It’s believed that there were settlements in the Ipswich area as far back as the Roman times.

But Ipswich really became prominent in the Anglo-Saxon era of the 7th and 8th centuries.

Archaeologists have discovered lots of Anglo-Saxon finds both in and around the Ipswich area!

Thomas Gainsborough, Charles Dickens and Lord Nelson are just some of the historical figures who have lived and worked in Ipswich.

With so much history, it probably won’t come as too much of a great surprise to you to discover that Ipswich has loads of ghostly tales to tell.

Here’s just a few which I like…
