Current interests include:-

  • Are there tunnels under the centre of Beccles and if so where?
  • What do the Beccles manor court rolls tell us about life in 15th century Beccles
  • How to decipher medieval documents
  • Street names and other place names in Beccles

This group will try to uncover what Beccles was like during this period.

This we shall do by finding out:

  • who lived in Beccles;
  • what they did;
  • what they owned;
  • whether they were affected by national events (e.g., the black death, religious upheavals (e.g., the Lollards), famine and the peasants revolt);

We shall see what we can discover from both published articles and original documents.
