On my return from working abroad for five years, I moved to a new house about 2km from the centre of Ipswich.
The Orwell Bridge is the part of the A14 which cross the River Orwell to the south of the town.
The structure is instantly recognisable to people from the area and it is easily identified from the air when flying into or out of London Stansted airport.
It was built between 1979 and 1982 at a cost of 24 million (pounds sterling). It is almost 1 mile long and at it's peak, is 146 feet about the river. At the time of construction, it was the longest concrete span bridge in the world.
Like many towns in England, there are many old buildings in the town. This wonderful black and white timber building is near the town centre and is in fact the base of the solicitors.
The 2 policemen walking past don't normally wear flourescent jackets, there was probably a football match being played the day this photo was taken.
