This attractive market town is well known for being the home of the Silver Spoon sugar brand, which is produced at the historic British Sugar factory. Bury St Edmunds also has an illustrious medieval past, and was once a prominent monastic settlement in the Saxon era.
A brief history
The settlement has existed since at least the 7th century, and began to hold annual fairs by the 13th century. By the Elizabethan era, Bury St Edmunds expanded into a thriving market town, although it was known for its notorious witch trials in the 17th century. The town was also home to the Theatre Royal by 1819, and the British Sugar Factory, the first sugar factory in Britain, opened in 1912. It is still producing Silver Spoon sugar today.
One of the oldest landmarks in Bury St Edmunds is St Mary's Church, which dates back to the 13th century and is one of the largest parish churches in England. The Abbey of Bury St Edmunds, meanwhile, was once a powerful medieval monastery although, like other monasteries in the country, it was dissolved during the Dissolution of the Monasteries in the 15th century. Despite its town status, Bury St Edmunds is also home to St Edmundsbury Cathedral, which was built more than 500 years ago and benefited from a new Gothic Revival tower in the early 2000s.
