Dear Ipswich, I hope you are having a great day.
I love Ipswich for its buildings and great architecture, not just the obvious landmarks that dominate our town such as the WTW building, the wonderful Ancient House, the University and Christchurch Mansion, but also the varying shapes, size and age range of the architecture that shares the same space.
I took my kids to school only today and sat at the roundabout adjacent to the Novotel. In front of me, I gazed at tall residential flats that dominate the skyline, the shell of Paul’s silo, two fantastic proud heritage churches, some directly in front of me and the others farther away in the background. Directly in front of me, the the little red Tudor house on College Street that I can only describe as the house from the film ‘Up’ – I for once, let time stand still for a moment whilst I just took it all in.
