Would you like to own a piece of historic Suffolk landscape?

Agents Fenn Wright are offering for sale Purdis Heath, land to the north of the Suffolk Show Ground and approximately two miles from the centre of Ipswich.

Purdis Heath is recognised as being one of the best remnants of a formerly extensive attractive heathland which lays to the east of Ipswich and forms the southern limit of the “sandlings” heaths of East Suffolk.

The overall property, designated by Natural England as access land subject to the CRoW Act, extends to approximately 17 hectares (42.04 acres) and is being offered for sale for offers in excess of £100,000.

The heath includes areas of heather, acid grassland together with stands of bracken, gorse and birch, together with important flora and fauna. The site favours the silver-studded blue butterfly together with the common blue and small heath butterflies.

Secondary woodland of young oak and birch is confined mainly to the outlined parts of the site and supports a variety of birds including nightingale, white throat, willow warbler and tawny owl.

The majority of the property is subject to the Ipswich Heaths SSSI (Site of Special Scientific Interest) however, the belts of woodland, parallel to Purdis Avenue and Bucklesham Road, are excluded from the SSSI.

The land is classified as heathland and as such would not have potential for residential development. In recent years has been managed by the Butterfly Conservation Group.

A Colchester man accused of being part of a gang of men armed with stun guns who burst into a flat occupied by two sex workers has admitted using a stolen bank card belonging to one of the women.

With Christmas around the corner, Suffolk has retail temp jobs a plenty - but which jobs in other sectors are getting increasingly tough to fill?

Over the Christmas and New Year period we all struggle to keep a lid on our waste - the food bin groans under the weight of turkey carcasses and our blue recycling bulges with empty boxes from trikes and new games consoles so the last thing you want is to miss your rubbish collection.

Suffolk police seized a higher volume of crack cocaine than any force outside the Met last year, according to new figures.

An Ipswich mother has called for measures to slow drivers at a busy junction after her son almost died in a collision there.

Today we can finally reveal the names of the people selected to be on our first ever Inspiring Women of Suffolk list.

This is a list that Suffolk should be proud of - 100 women who are positive role models for future generations, women who have achieved success in a diverse range of fields from business, the arts, sport and education to the third sector.

The list was put together by a panel of judges this summer after we asked readers for their nominations.
