The Ipswich Group, Suffolk Family History Society August monthly meeting will be:

The History and Story of Dunwich Heath

The talk, by Richard Symes, will include stories of some of the families who lived there. As well as:
Love affairs. Life and death. Fortunes made and lost.
Smugglers and shipwrecks. Submarines grey and yellow. Poets, artists, military men.
Some surprises, and it all happened here!
