Once again I have visited Ipswich - and this time found a plaque commemorating the birth of Thomas Wolsey.

A webpage dedicated to him is available here.

Although his birthplace no longer stands - there are some lovely old buildings remaining in Ipswich. It is certainly a town worth visiting - a lovely marina has been built, where once ugly dockyards and warehouses once stood. There are quite a few coffee shops (I spent Monday morning drinking (far too much) coffee and tea in the Starbucks in Tavern Street while I worked on my research in Congress in the mid 1970s). The plaque was on the side of the beautiful buildings shown in the photograph below
