Fears over print museum's future
William Clowes Museum
The print museum has to move in August
One of the largest printing museums in the country will be forced to close unless a new site can be secured.

The home of the William Clowes Museum in Beccles, on the Suffolk and Norfolk border, is due to be demolished to make way for a supermarket.

In the 1800s William Clowes was the largest printing firm in the world.

The museum, which opened in 1984 and will be forced to close in August, now has to raise 50,000 to secure the new site.

The museum - which includes all aspects of printing including molten lead and litho - is one of the largest in East Anglia and houses a unique collection of printing memorabilia.
