The powerful and famous abbey was the focus of life in Bury St Edmunds for 500 years

It drew to its gates supporting trades, activities and all classes of people, from the prince to the pauper.

We trace the boundary of the abbey and bring into sharp focus life on the margins of this once great complex.
