Local Links


Sudbury Model Railway Club

Sudbury Model Railway Club was formed in 1980 after an advert was placed in the Railway Modeller asking for interested modellers to contact Malcolm Hines. This led to the club attending local functions with layouts built by individual members.

Work started on the first club layout (Melford) in 1981, which then appeared at the club’s first model railway exhibition in October of the same year. Being a small club, we have never had a large membership, but those that attend are enthusiastic.

Sudbury Freemen’s Society

The Sudbury Freemen’s Society, of which all the town’s freemen are automatically members, is one of the most active bodies of its kind in East Anglia. It was revived in 1972, at first as a reconstitution of the Freemen’s Protection Society set up in the 1890’s but, five years later at the quinquennial meeting, it adopted the present name.
