Relics of Beccles History

View Larger MapBeccles, a small town in East Suffolk not far from my old home has a new blog about the town's history. Relics of Beccles is by Debs Dwelling, a "writer, genealogist & part-time diva". She is based in Australia!

So far there are two posts, the most recent on Evacuation to Beccles : 1939
about the evacuation of children, and often their mothers, from London at the start of WW2. It seems strange that while Beccles was a destination for London evacuees children from Great Yarmouth, not far away, were being evacuated to the Midlands.

A previous post is memories of the King`s Head Hotel, a local landmark now restored and reopened.
