Welcome to Mark, who has just opened up a DIY store on the corner of Astonville and Lavenham- with all the building work and renovation going on he should get plenty of customers, but it is still a courageous thing to set up your own small business in such harsh economic times. He is friendly and helpful and has managed to sqeeze much more stock into a very small space than you might think.

I found a some wise words from the great medieval scholar, David Knowles, on the dangers of moralizing when writing about the past- ‘ The historian is not a  judge, still less a hanging judge.’
