Old Maps of Wrentham

Historic Maps of Wrentham and the local area.

I lived here with my mum and dad, James (Jim) and Marjorie Smedley from 1963 to 1974. Before that we lived at Tower Mills, Southwold Road, Wrentham where mum and dad had a millimg business I went to the Primary School and later the Lowestoft Grammar School. The building looks a lot different now with the exposed brickwork. I didn't realise the building was Grade 2 listed!

The first two cottages on the left have been demolished. The grey and the white building. The shop at the end is what I own. It used to be a grocers shop, watch makers and a bakery. It was mentioned in the 1861 census but I cannot trace the shops back further.
