We are very sad to announce the death of our dear former Chairman Barry Wall shortly before Christmas. He tirelessly led Sudbury History Society for many years with monthly meetings of informative and entertaining talks, often with himself as the speaker. He took us on countless coach trips to old East Anglian sites, buildings and Suffolk churches where he gave us a fascinating insight into their history. He wrote books including an authoritative guide to Sudbury. We are arranging a Memorial Service (date to be advised) to pay tribute to Barry and his invaluable contribution to Sudbury and its history.
