Thomas Gainsborough, Sudbury’s famous son

Welcome to the website of the Sudbury Society, a registered charity with some 270 members which is affiliated to Civic Voice and the Suffolk Preservation Society. Our broad objectives are threefold:

  1. To stimulate local interest and pride in our attractive and historic market town.
  2. To encourage the very highest standard of planning and architecture in the construction of new buildings and in the renovation of existing structures.
  3. To protect, develop and improve the many features of historic or public interest.

We have given each section of the website an  image of one of the significant buildings in the town.
