I am a keen amateur historian and have recently moved to the area from the West Country.
I recently came across an address called Gooseberry Row, Sudbury, in an old document. The name really intrigued me as I had never heard of it and could not find it on a map.
However, I have found a picture on a website and an old plan which shows that it was a row of old weavers cottages with gardens which used to be at the bottom of what is now North Street Car Park, where the motorcycles park.
I wondered if readers who lived in that area, or who know Sudbury’s history, might know what happened to Gooseberry Row – why weren’t they renovated?
It looks as though they must have been flattened and concreted over simply to expand/build the car park.
Anyone who can help should email firstname.lastname@example.org.
