  • A Ramble Round The Ramparts

    For centuries, the centre of Ipswich was encircled by a defensive rampart - not a wall, but earth banks and ditches. The position of these ancient defences can still be seen on the streets of 21st century Ipswich. Join the Ipswich Tourist Guides Association for a walk along the lines of 'the walls' of Ipswich and spot the hidden signs in street names, buildings and modern street patterns.
