Bungay residents and visitors alike were treated to a fascinating look at the town’s ancient and modern buildings at a new exhibition.
People flocked to St Mary’s Church, in Trinity Street, over the long bank holiday weekend to brush up on their local history knowledge.
The exhibition included rarely seen pictures of such buildings as St Edmund’s Catholic Church, Flixton Hall, old pubs, shops, churches and dwelling houses.
Many of the material displayed came courtesy of the Bungay Museum archives of the late Frank Honeywood.
While others were sourced from the Bungay Old Buildings Archive created by the Bungay Society.
The exhibition also included information on those who designed some of the historic buildings and those who lived in them.
And contemporary architects provided their plans of buildings which have been converted or updated - including the Fisher Theatre and Upland Hall.
The exhibition was staged by the Friends of St Mary’s Church and the Bungay Tourism Group.
