Sutton Bridge – an Industrial History
Sutton Bridge has a far more important place in history and industrial archaeology than many people realise. Two hundred years ago the name did not exist and in 2009 the parish had only about 3,500 people but much still remains to show the fascinating transport and industrial history of this spot at the junction of Lincolnshire, Cambridgeshire and Norfolk.
This book is not only about the bridge that gave the village its name but also about the settlement and port that grew up next to the bridge, the main road and railway that linked Norfolk to the lands to the west, the surprisingly short lived Dock and the long-vanished RAF base at Wingland.
