In Wickham Market the fish and chip restaurant, confusingly in the front of the No, you go down the side to get chips chippy, is now a bookshop and the B1438 (what used to be the A12) is closed on the north side of the square so buses have to go down Broad Road ... gets interesting at the hairpin right turn into Border Cot Lane.

Magpie?  Owner Jane Hughes has sent a memoir of those 12 years, perhaps it's a warning to others that she thinks pay parking was probably the final straw.

Wickham Market 1905Roundabout 1995 the pillarbox in the Wickham Market post office's car park moved from the far side to sensibly by the post office entrance.  We were told the box had been on the other side because the house on that side had been the post office.  This card posted in 1905 shows that at the beginning of the 20th century the PO was opposite The George.

The Wickham Market Resource Centre Wickham Market Resource Centreis not  as difficult to find as Radio Suffolk but it is a bit hidden away.  We went there for a retinal scan yesterday and discovered it's a pleasantly straight forward, clean building with disabled access and a library stuffed with books, PCs, DVDs and talking books.  The library is about eight times the size it was when in that flint stone shed across the road that is now the vets ... but it still doesn't seem to open that much.

we 30 Apr

AkenfieldThe historic Harwich Electric Palace Cinema is a bit of a trek but worth the effort and at the end of next month it's showing Peter Hall's Akenfield.  Made in 1974 the film was shot on location in villages west of Wickham Market and using local people as the cast.

Pay and Display comes to Wickham Market Pay and Display has arrived in the Wickham Market car park at a very reasonable £100 for 2-4 hours (we're not kidding) and yet the toilets are still locked!  It might be a warning that like the Wickham car park both the Elms and Fore Street car parks in Framlingham are run by Suffolk Coastal District Council ...

Green beads defying gravityHere's a great freemans from the Wickham Market dentist.  It's a two minute egg timer to encourage proper teeth cleaning by children, but when you turn it upside down instead of sand falling from the top to the bottom the tiny green beads bubble up from the bottom to the top!  To get one we had to lie and say it was for our niece, actually it wasn't lying, she will get it ... eventually.
