Have you ever heard about the ‘Kannibal Pot’, where Teddy Boys would congregate? Join this Guided Walk to discover untold stories about long gone places and people, told through the voices of local residents and old photographs.
The butchers in Sudbury, Frank Putman… They were still slaughtering their own cattle. I can remember seeing the cows going through and hearing a lot of ‘mooing’. (Patricia)
It (the ‘Kannibal Pot’) had a juke box which is what we all wanted because it was the start of rock ‘n roll era, and in fact outside the Swan pub my friends and I used to go down and we used to meet some Teddy Boys there, with their smart suit… (Barbara)
The ‘Changing Sudbury Guided Walks’ are part of ‘Changing Sudbury’, an exciting 1-year long heritage community project exploring the rich social and cultural history of Sudbury from the 1950s onwards through the memories of first generation arrivals and existing residents who saw, lived through, and contributed to its changes, shaping the diverse and multifaceted Sudbury we know today.
These Guided Walks, funded by The National Lottery Heritage Fund, are part of a series of outputs that will be produced over the course of the project, which will run until March 2020. If you’d like to know more, ‘Changing Sudbury’ exhibition is currently on display until the 21st October 2019 at The Library at Willesden Green.
