LONG SHOP MUSEUM
IN THE TOWN...
The Film Theatre, or Leiston Picture House as it was originally named, has traded continuously for 104 years, it's loved by the town and has a strong following locally. It fell into decline in the 70's and was saved from closure in 1976 by Leiston Town Council, who have since invested time and money in carefully updating the building and technical spec with Dolby Digital 7.1 Surround EX sound and Dolby 3D as well as a solid digital projection set up.
UP THE ROAD.....
In about 1363 the abbey was moved away from what was evidently a rather unhealthy location on swampy ground, and rebuilt on its present site. The old abbey was dismantled for building materials (though a fragment of it can still be seen) and as a result the 14th century abbey incorporates some Norman features.
Robert de Ufford, Earl of Suffolk, oversaw the rebuilding of the abbey on a much larger scale than the original and included several new chapels.
The outside walls were finished with fine chequerwork, while the windows had delicate Perpendicular-style tracery.
