Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk was once the capital of East Anglia, and the town and surrounding area are full of history.

This lovely mediaeval market town with its ancient buildings attracts visitors in their thousands each year. Perhaps best known for its abbey ruins, there has been a church on the site of Suffolk's cathedral for nearly 1000 years. Once part of the great Abbey of St Edmund, St James’ Church dates from 1503, its nave formed from the earlier building.Though little remains of the Benedictine Abbey, following the Dissolution in 1539, St James’ church has continued to grow over the centuries, and Bury St Edmunds Cathedral was created when the Diocese of St Edmundsbury and Ipswich was formed in 1914.

The striking Millennium Tower, completed in 2005, is now the crowning glory of the Cathedral.

In this book photographer Alan Childs captures the perfection of Bury St Edmunds both in the broader sweep of the town and through the individual and distinctive character of its buildings. His skilled eye has alighted on many features otherwise easily overlooked; for residents, and for those visiting the town this is the perfect memento, while for those wishing to discover more the book includes a series of five town walks accompanied by superb maps specially recreated from Victorian originals.

Alan Childs, photographer and author, lives in Norfolk and has produced a number of books about East Anglia including A Portrait of Norwich and Discover the North Norfolk Coast. He is also co-author of The Man Who Loved Horses: The Story of Jack Juby, Face to Face, and Holt Hall - An Illustrated History.
