Barry Tolfree has spent the last ten years continuing the work of his friend the late Ronnie Waters, researching the history of Southwold’s working life for his website www.southwoldandson.co.uk. For the most part, recorded history about local life is frustratingly fragmentary. But occasionally whole stories emerge, fully formed, some of them truly remarkable.
Barry has selected a handful of these to present in his talk. You’ll meet, a corrupt magistrate, a genius fraudster, an unscrupulous doctor, entrepreneurial smuggling folk, a fake chiropodist and tragic young lovers. All of them concealed just beneath the surface of an allegedly sleepy Suffolk seaside resort.
