The Trust is pleased to have acquired the following items to add to the archive.


A scrapbook album covering the period 1928 to 1986 kept by Joyce Hughes-Hallett née Cobbold (#414 on the family tree) and copies of ‘Five Homes during Half a Century’ compiled by Rev. Rowland F. Cobbold (#258) and of ‘Higher Water – The Song of a Barge Picnic’ by the same author were given to the Trust by Joyce’s son Professor Andrew Hughes-Hallett.  The scrapbook is particularly helpful with dates and locations of events and the Trust is enthusiastically grateful to Andrew (and his mother for compiling it in the first place).

The new Guide to the Church of St Clement (not infrequently referred to as ‘the Cobbold Church’) prepared, with a little help from the Trust, by the Ipswich Society and donated by the Society.

A photograph of a stained-glass window depicting ‘Cobbold’s Fine Ales’ taken from ‘The Mitre’ at the junction of St. Helen’s Street and Waterworks Street kindly donated by Ken Wilson for which the Trust is most grateful.


THE BOTTLE; or CRUIKSHANK ILLUSTRATED by the Rev. Richard Cobbold AM RD, Rector of Wortham.  This is a rare and unusual item and will be the subject of a Cobbweb as soon as time permits.
