Realistic new map of Suffolk boosts tourism
By Suffolk Gazette Staff
Tourism chiefs are delighted with a new map of Suffolk that helps visitors navigate their way around the county.
The map (see below), which was produced by the Suffolk Gazette’s crack team of graphic designers and cartographers at a cost of £10,000, includes the good (rich farmlands), the bad (farmers shooting burglars) and the ugly (Haverhill).
A county official said: “We are grateful to the Suffolk Gazette for making the new map, which will go a long way to, er, putting Suffolk on the map.”
A spokesman for the Suffolk Gazette said: “We think it’s a fair representation of our county. Hopefully people in Haverhill will still speak to us, although some of them sent us death threats after we unveiled the Suffolk version of Monopoly and they were in Old Kent Road.”
