IC Picture House logoDuring the restoration of Holywells Park in Ipswich, local people were asked to give their thoughts and memories of the Park. Some memories date back to the 1940’s and give a fascinating insight into how life was during this time. Some of the events held yearly at Holywells are also captured in this film. The restoration of the park was also captured on film and can be viewed on this channel.

Holywells Park is a County Wildlife Site, a Conservation Area with two listed buildings – the Stable Block and Conservatory – and is on the English Heritage Register of Historic Parks and Gardens of Special Historic Interest.
