In the past, the United Kingdom was organized in more counties than it is today. One of the old counties that have been integrated today in other administrative territories is the one of East Suffolk. This county had the town of Ipswich as the headquarter town. Today, the East and West Suffolk counties have been merged into one, with the Suffolk County Council being found at Endeavour House, on 8 Russell Road, Ipswich, IP1 2BX.
