Lost Country Houses Of Suffolk by W.M Roberts (Boydell Press Hardback, Waterstones 29.95)
In the last 100 years, some of the finest buildings in the county have been lost forever. Some burned to the ground, some through the horrors of war but in most cases were lost through demolition. This is the story of 40 of those houses and includes a fascinatingly detailed account of how each of them eventually lost their battle to exist. W.M Roberts has crafted an impressive read which identifies who lived in each house, who designed each house and the circumstances which lead to its demolition through photos and engravings to produce a truly beautiful book.

30 Walks In Suffolk (AA Publications, Waterstones 6.99)

The AA produce some of the best travel guides and maps you would ever need to use and have now added a new string to their bow with the publication of Map cards. These double sided cards have a popular walk printed on one side and an easy to follow guide to that specific walk on the reverse. Printed with vibrant colours with the AAs trademark ink clarity, these cards are perfect for the glove box in order to help you explore some of the very best walks in glorious Suffolk.

Suffolk Steam Railways by David Kindred (Old Pond Paperback, Waterstones 12.95)
This is a photographic tribute to the railways and steam engines that were once held in high regard throughout the county. As a major employer and vital service for thousands of Suffolk residents, the grand old days of the steam engine have long gone but can be experienced again with the help of facinating books like this one by former EADT picture editor David Kindred. An evocative and well produced homage.

Childrens Norfolk And Suffolk by Steve and Alison Appleyard (Red Flannel Paperback, Waterstones 9.99)
The Appleyards have compiled a wonderful list of places to take children in what they call The two best Counties in the Country. With over 150 destinations included, this book features some of the best days out you can imagine and is filled with photographs and notes taken by the Appleyards whilst they visited each spot with their own children. This could be the perfect book for the summer holidays, especially if youve got the grandchildren visiting!

Parish Churches Of West Suffolk by Adrian S. Pye (Aspye Paperback, Waterstones 12.75)
In an effort to discover more about the churches his family once used, local author and photographer Adrian Pye discovered a passion for the architecture of the buildings he was visiting and has since gone on to publish many books on the subject. This latest release is a well-researched photographic journey through West Suffolk and includes hundreds of glossy photos and brief details of each church.
