RE: Suffolk connections


RAF Halton is about a mile across the fields from my home. We have front row seats for the Lowestoft Air Show as we are next door to the Victoria Hotel.

I grew up in Cambridge (family hails originally from N Essex centuries ago, so nearly local) and thereafter Sheffield and Nottinghamshire, and spent many happy childhood weekends on the coast in Suffolk, particularly at Walberswick and Southwold (this is in the 70s)

Our chorus of "are we nearly there yet" and fidgety young bladders seemed to frequently end up in my Dad stopping the car at Clare Castle Country Park for us to go to  the loo and run off some energy

So when I was looking to move away from Cambridge into the countryside, Clare and surroundings seemed to be the obvious, and lovely, choice

I love my adopted county very much. There just seem to be endless soft green acres studded with pretty villages, where life goes on much as it has done for decades. There can't be anywhere else in the SE of England and this close to London that feels so spacious and untouched by the greedy metropolis. I like to believe the county has an independent spirit and culture of its own which is also unique for somewhere otherwise so close to the ubiquity of the rest of the south - certainly there is far more of a distinctive Suffolk culture than in neigbouring Cambridgeshire or Essex
