A new initiative to raise awareness of buildings of architectural and historic significance in Ipswich has been launched by the borough council.
The Supplementary Planning Document Local List (Buildings of Townscape Interest) features hundreds of schools, churches and industrial sites which are not listed but considered “interesting and locally notable historic assets which make up the historic environment of our town”.
But there are also a number of homes on the list, including properties in Constable Road, Belstead Road and Burrell Road.
So, did your home make the cut?
Alan Road Methodist Church
Built in 1880 as the Wesleyan Methodist Chapel by Alfred Hubert. Red Brick with early Art Nouveau windows. The adjoining schoolroom of 1877 was probably the original chapel. The building occupies a corner site at the junction of Alan Road and Rosehill Road and is of considerable importance through its dominating gabled ridge line and arched porch.
Alexandra Park Boundary Marker
Parish boundary markers were important features in the administration of the Parish. The Parish dealt with such matters as
relief for the poor, provision of street lighting etc. for which rates were paid by householders so it was important to have the areas accurately marked out.
Byles Fountain, Alexandra Park
Alexandra Park was originally the grounds of Hill House owned by the Byles family. When Alderman Charles Cowell former Mayor of Ipswich inherited the grounds from his mother Marianne Byles, he donated the land to the town and it became Byles Park. In 1905 Charles Cowell gifted a drinking fountain to the town to be erected in Byles Park. The inscription reads as follows: “In
remembrance of the Byles family to whom this park belonged for more than 100 years, this drinking fountain was erected in 1905 by Charles Henry Cowell, Alderman of the Borough and twice Mayor of Ipswich, whose mother was Marianne Byles, born at Hill House 1801.”
