Hopefully, the second clue will bring you closer to our final Enjoy Felixstowe More! game of stones hand-painted rock – and may even lead someone to find it.
Our first clue was: He was known as ‘Mr Felixstowe’ and he is remembered in a prominent seafront shelter – you won’t find the stone here, but you can enjoy the sea view.
That should have taken you to the new shelter overlooking the sea in the gardens next to Felixstowe Town Hall and to Phil Hadwen, known as Mr Felixstowe.
Former teacher Phil was a much-loved and respected local historian who was co-author of the Felixstowe “postcard” series of books and well-known for his extensive knowledge of the resort, giving talks to groups on aspects of its heritage and guided walks around its Edwardian and Victorian buildings.
He is remembered on a plaque in the shelter.
