History of Lady Elizabeth
Market Hill, the heart of our town, owes its existence to a 14th century woman of nearby Clare. She was a widow and ‘lord’ of Sudbury. In Lady Elizabeth de Burgh’s time, Anglo-Saxon Sudbury was an interweaving web of narrow streets, until she invested in an ambitious extension to the east that is now Sudbury’s main trading centre.
The open space in front of the church was used by the market stalls. The timber frames within modern shop fronts, and some surviving long, narrow plots are remnants of this 14th century layout which we can still see today.
