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.
