We were told in the dentists that the Wickham Market post office had a makeover maybe two? three? years ago so that's how long it is since we've been in there. The PO is looking cheerfully bright, is selling household goods, food and has a significant stationery area ... and a good idea at the allotments.

It must have been a loss to Wickham Market when Seagers hardware and garden shop shut, 2012 we think.

Yesterday's Wickham Market Primary School Summer Extravaganza (rolls of the tongue doesn't it?) was just so much fun, loads going on with judo, belly dancing, the cops had a dress up pile, the traditional queue for burgers and ice cream and how they got the Red Arrows to fly past (very slightly out of formation - it's the cuts you know)! Already looking forward to next year's.

Arriving back near the coast yesterday we did our shopping in the Wickham Market co-op ... it was so calm and unhurried compared with the Hackney Tescos near Chelmsford ... ahhhh (we thought) nice to be back ... on the back road to Easton we dodged two hatchbacked mums with hectic lifestyles and a flying post van ... Suffolk eh? (we thought).

Looks like the Wickham Market George will be out of play for some time after that fire so no pub in the town, the old co-op is still TO LET as is Sweet Dreams on the corner of Broad Road and what was Seagers the hardware shop looks very sorry for itself with a net curtain in the window ... but still a chip shop, a cafe, two restaurants and the post office has an outside hole in the wall for cash which it never did when we lived there.

In the middle of last century the junction at the top of Fore and Castle Streets in Framlingham looked different, the station didn't have any broken windows and still the fire buckets in place despite grass growing where the track had been. Mind you Wickham Market looked pretty much the same though the carnival was still happening despite the A12 passing through the village.

This LNER (London and North Eastern Railway) price list shows that surprisingly (to us) in 1937 Wickham Market had markets on Mondays and Saturdays (return third class ticket from Darsham 1/6d, that's 7.5p). Rather less surprisingly a return ticket Wilby-Ipswich (markets Tuesdays and Saturdays then in Ipswich) was just over four shillings but still a little surprising that somewhere as small as Wilby ever had a station.
