Demolition work is continuing at a former Conservative club in a Suffolk town centre. 

A large part of the Conservative club building in Prince Street, Sudbury, has been demolished to make way for new homes. 

Demolition work began in March after Babergh District Council approved plans for the new homes in March 2021. 

The building had been in the town centre for more than 160 years. 

The mayor of Sudbury said although it was a "shame" to lose such an iconic building, there are some positives to the plans.

According to the plans, the redevelopment will see six new town houses built and one apartment, with part of the hall also being converted into a design studio/gallery. 

The building had been empty for a number of years with most of the windows boarded up. 

A design and access statement for the new two bedroom home states: "The site lies within the town centre of Sudbury but is outside of any of the defined shopping frontages and falls within a designated “mixed-use” area."
