Bury St Edmunds


What a wonderful town Bury is, two huge worshipping places a Cathedral with a recently constructed tower and the longest church in Suffolk (St Mary's) the sister of Henry VIII is buried here.

The Abbey was once a huge building which now boasts the Abbey Gardens and Ruins, the gardens are world renowned, a few years ago gaining the World in Bloom Crown

Much more on this later

Here is a view from the top of the old Cathedral Tower overlooking BSE towards Angel Hill

 


...and those beautiful gardens

  

...and the Abbey Ruins with a couple of 'fingers' pointing skywards and before the cathedral received its new tower



I once worked out of an office on the extreme left of The Abbey Ruins, this was haunted by The Lady in Grey!

We have only one cathedral in Suffolk and this is St. James, dedicated in 1914 from a much older church. In the early part of the 21c a tower has been added

I recommend the Greene King IPA brewery tour. When I went me and my friend ended up tagging along with a large group of wooden planks and afterwards went to the Nutshell with a few of them.

I remember the Nutshell, friend of mine was a barman there in the 70s. There were some damned good pubs in Bury, mostly Greene King, their bitter always needed livening up with some Abbot Ale, draught Abbot was a cracking pint. I had a bedsit for a while in St Andrews St North when I worked for Amot Controls in Western Way after demob. Most drinking was done at the Woolpack in Fornham St Martin just outside Bury on the Thetford road
