Industry and Manufacturing

Kelly’s Trade Directory 1888 provides a useful snapshot of industry and manufacturing in late Victorian Sudbury: “Here are cocoa nut matting and weaving manufactories, flour mills, malt and lime kilns. Malting is most extensively carried on here. Many of the inhabitants are employed in the manufactures, chiefly of silk, velvet, stays and mats….. there is a landing quay near the railway station, now seldom used, the railway having superceded water carriage.”
