The Halesworth Timeline features a summary of all information about the settlement at Halesworth from pre-history to the turn of the second Millennium.
Halesworth also has a rich brewing history. Its pubs are explained in some detail and with original photos by Janet Huckle in A history of Beer and Pubs in Halesworth.
Halesworth War Memorial, created in 1921, stands near the centre of the town and this page gives much detail abount its creation, inscriptions and Unveiling Ceremony.
But the pride of place of information about Halesworth’s history must rest with Mike Fordham's 2005 published book entitled "The Economic & Social History of Halesworth", which gives a greatly detailed and interesting account of the history of the town from the Saxon period up to the beginning of the 20th Century. The book explains the reasoning behind past events and is aided by a range of fascinating maps and diagrams.
