Planet Ipswich : A bridge between the Ipswiches of the world

                                            Welcome to Planet Ipswich

This is the only website in the world where you will find details relating to the origins of ALL the Ipswiches around the globe. Some of this information is exclusive to Planet Ipswich.

The aim of Planet Ipswich is to build up as much information as possible relating to the history, geography, people & interesting facts concerning the Ipswiches of the world. If you are visiting the site for the first time, go to the Ips Which?’ page to find out where they are all located. If you have visited the site before, check out the What’s New? page to see whats been updated in the last few weeks.

As well as a page dedicated to each of the Ipswiches around the globe, I have also included pages relating to:

The Planet Ipswich Quiz – test your knowledge concerning all things ‘Ipswich’

The Ones That Got Away - places formerly called Ipswich

Ipswich as a Scientific Name

The Ipswich Sparrow

The Ipswichian Interglacial Period

Ipswich Basin, Australia

Ships Named Ipswich

Roads Named Ipswich - a list of as many roads, streets, avenues etc. that I have been able to find called Ipswich

Ips Misc. - a page for interesting facts & miscellaneous items

Also, don’t forget to visit the Photo Gallery & Links pages.

Is there anything else that you can think of that bears the name of our towns? If so, Id like to know so that I can add a feature on that as well.

I would be grateful to my fellow Ipswichians from across the planet for any information, feedback, photos, or constructive criticism that will help build up a databank of all things Ipswich.

You can contact me at or alternatively, leave a message in the Guestbook.

I hope to hear from you soon.

Specials thanks to Malcolm Doyle for his invaluable help in sending me his database on all things Ipswich & for his continuing research.
