Ipswich in Suffolk is situated on the estuary of the River Orwell. It used to be a manufacturing town but most of the manufacturing has moved away or closed down. This is the largest town in Suffolk with a population of 133,000. Much new building has take place to improve the town.
Although the likes of Ransomes lawnmowers, Sims & Jefferies and the large sugar beet factory have all closed or moved this is still a Haven Port through which millions of tonnes of freight passes through it every year. Serviced by a reasonable number of small cafes, restaurants and bars Ipswich is a pleasant town with an excellent dock area and well worth a visit.
