Mark Mitchels on ‘A History of the Suffolk Landscape’

For many people the Suffolk landscape is the landscape of England – passed down to us through the paintings of John Constable. But the Stour he painted has lock gates, a sure sign of Man’s intervention! This illustrated talk will examine the changes which have occurred in Suffolk across the centuries and show the ways in which they have left their mark on the county today.

All members welcome to this Zoom meeting.  Please register with Steve Deacon by emailing fxfhs@hotmail.com with the subject header ‘Zoom Registrations’.
