Claydon Hall Dairy
135 Bramford Lane
We have to
credit Dave Riseborough with this example of
lettering. Although this website has been developing since 2003 and
several contributors have been scouring Ipswich and its environs for
on walls, this is the first time ( January 2010) we've seen the words:
3.1.2010. Dave writes:-
"Hullo Mr Van Loon, I very much enjoyed looking at your website.
There are some old painted signs in Ipswich which I cannot find on your
website and I wonder whether you know about them. I have attached
photos of them:
1. A sign for Claydon Hall Dairy on the side of a house on the corner
of Bramford Lane and Hampton Road ..."
Dave also cited the Tavern Street signs of the former Wootton's the hairdresser
shop (now on its
own page) and provided some much improved photographs and the fugitive Cullingham Road 'Hay &
straw...' sign (with new image) - also now on its own page. Many thanks.

Below is a comparison of the sign with an
Claydon Hall is off Church Lane, which runs uphill from Claydon village
in Hall Lane. It is apparently built on the site of an
ancient castle; part of the moat still remains. Presumably the cows
kept on the farm provided the milk for this servery. The excellent
