Car crash damages Curson Lodge in Ipswich, England

A minor automobile accident has damaged the entrance and corner post of Curson Lodge, Ipswich's "finest" Tudor house. The building dates to 1480 and was a guesthouse of the Curson House estate owned by Cardinal Thomas Wolsey.

Most worrying was damage done to the building's corner post, which bears a merchant's mark near the top in the form of a puzzle. "The corner post is wonderful - it has a merchant's mark at the top of it, which is a puzzle I haven't been able to solve, to tell us who lived there and what his trade was," said local historian Dr John Blatchly.
