A SURVEY OF SUFFOLK PARISH HISTORY
Researched in the late 1980s and first published in 1990, the Survey of Suffolk Parish History summarised in a standard form the history of each parish in the county compiled from a variety of printed sources. In doing so it touches upon every part of local history including administration, landscape, social, religious and economic characteristics, and covers a time span from the earliest archaeology to modern times.
It took three years to complete and went into three volumes. It is available via Suffolk County Council and is, I understand, being updated. I have also found copies on Amazon.
