From the Middle Ages, when this historic market town grew as a thriving centre of the wool industry, to its current status as a popular tourist destination and cultural and retail hub for West Suffolk, Bury St Edmunds has a proud and distinctive identity. This extraordinary history is embodied in the many fine buildings that have shaped the town.

Bury St Edmunds in 50 Buildings explores the history of this rich and vibrant community through a selection of its greatest architectural treasures. From the remains of its famous abbey to the new Gothic Revival cathedral tower, built as part of the Millennium Project between 2000 and 2005, this study celebrates Bury St Edmunds’ architectural heritage in a new and accessible way. Local author and historian Martyn Taylor guides readers on a tour of the town’s historic buildings and modern architectural marvels.
