Ipswich Building Preservation Trust HOD 2016

Pykenham's Gatehouse opens to the public in the summer, see News for details. The Gatehouse in Northgate Street has witnessed more than 500 years of Ipswich history. It has seen the comings and goings of some 20 generations of Ipswich people – at first through the north gate and along the street with the brook, and more recently past the imposing Carnegie public library built opposite it during the last century of its vigilance.
