When I visited Stowmarket (my home town) in the summers of 1999 and 2000 I
tried to find a cloisonn pin with the Stowmarket "coat of arms". I have
collected these pins over the years from places I had visited.
Nobody carried such a thing!!
I know that there is a coat of arms for Stowmarket (don't ask me to describe
it) so I was very disappointed that I was unable to find such a thing....
Perhaps it is a little too "touristy" for such a class act as Stowmarket??

Does Stowmarket have its own town Emblem and Motto?
This question occurred to me having read John's recent mail about
As the list has gone a bit quiet, perhaps someone can answer this question
which came up in a recent
conversation: why are the counties of Norfolk (North folk) and Suffolk
(South folk) so named.
Why not North-shire or South-shire for example?
I cannot answer his question, but I can add the following:
Origin of name: Of Anglo-Saxon origin meaning 'Sothern people' to
distinguish them from the 'North folk'
Name first recorded: 895 as Suth Folchi.
County Motto: Opus Nostrum Dirige 'Direct our work'
