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, 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).
It highlights where people can enjoy a caravan holiday, where they can find some slot machines – and which part of the county has lots of wonky houses.
For those looking to retire to Suffolk, it highlights Woodbridge as the perfect place.
And for rich Londoners looking for a Suffolk home, they need only search along the coast.
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.
“It seems to sum up the county in an easy-to-understand way.”
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.”
The county map is one of a stunning trilogy that will be on display in London to help tourists understand what is available in East Anglia.
