Lost Bury St Edmunds Summary

Lost Bury St Edmunds by Martyn Taylor

Bury St Edmunds is a proud and traditional medieval market town that has managed to preserve its identity in the face of post-war modernisation, and today attracts thousands of visitors who enjoy its unique charms. St John's Street was saved by concerned residents in 1971 and is still full of distinctive independent shops today. However, it hasn't all been good news: the demise of the cattle market and associated flea market was a major blow to the town and an ultra-modern development, The Arc, now stands there instead; the town has lost every greengrocer and almost every butcher and baker, while over forty pubs have closed and with them the traditional games and sports that we participated in before the advent of the modern technological age. Lost Bury St Edmunds is a fully illustrated book that sheds light on the town's past and will appeal to both visitors and residents who have the fondest of memories of what was once there.
