  • Here are the details of maps for Bury St Edmunds:

  • Suffolk 44.07a Bury St Edmunds 1884 - published 2018; intro by Pamela Taylor. ISBN 978-1-78721-179-7
  • Suffolk 44.07b Bury St Edmunds 1903 - published 1999; intro by Alan Godfrey. ISBN 978-1-84151-073-6

    We have published two versions of this map, showing how the area changed across the years. The 1884 one is fully coloured, taken from the lovely 1st Edition OS handcoloured edition. The maps provide excellent coverage of the historic town of Bury St Edmunds, extending eastward to Moreton Hall. Coverage extends from Westgate Street and Hospital Road northward to Northgate Station.

    The many features on a busy map include Westgate Brewery, St Edmund's Brewery, malthouses, Eastgate station, tannery, St James's church (cathedral from 1914), St Mary's church (last resting place of Mary Tudor, Queen of France), ruins of St Edmund's Abbey, Cornhill, Town Hall, St Peter's church. Much of the medieval street plan is still apparent on the layout of this map.
