STOWMARKET high street turned back time this week as people shared their memories of past shopping in the market town.

Shoppers were invited into the former Bedroom Shop, in Ipswich Street, on Wednesday, which was filled with old-fashioned goods that could once be purchased in the town.

A time-line of pictures documenting what the high street looked like in the past was also on display.

The event was inspired by the BBC television series Turn Back Time High Street History series and organised by Mid Suffolk District Council with funding from Mid Suffolk Local Strategic Partnbership.”

Some of the memories and photographs from visitors on Wednesday will be archived as part of the town’s history.
