“Clearly this project couldn’t have worked without the community coming forward and sharing their memories.  A lot of emphasis has gone in to understanding how people experienced and interacted with the church in the decades before its closure in 1973.  Church history can be a little dull – but this project isn’t and is doing something different, looking at the experiences we otherwise wouldn’t know about.  It does what good community history should do, which is involve the community in its own story.”  Dr. Harvey Osborne, Head of the history department at the University of Suffolk.
