St Edmundsbury Cathedral in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk

Bury St Edmunds

Bury St Edmunds is a pretty market town in Suffolk. The town centre has a ruined abbey and a living cathedral, and a bustling, close-set collection of shopping streets. The cathedral is the episcopal seat of the Diocese of St Edmundsbury and Ipswich.

The town is known for brewing, malting and sugar-making; here will be found a large Greene King brewery and a British Sugar processing factory, making sugar from the vast sugar-beet harvest of Suffolk and Cambridgeshire. Many large and small businesses are located in Bury, which traditionally has given Bury an affluent economy with low unemployment. (Read more)
