Women of Sudbury, interpreted by Derby College students

Explore the untold stories of Sudbury's women 

An American heiress, a lonely queen and life as a 1940s scullery maid, each play a unique part in Sudbury’s history. The students of Derby College have helped us to interpret our stories and bring their stories to life through art and alternative media.
