Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk
The park in the old inner court of Bury Abbey at Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk.
We move up to the north now, to Bury St. Edmunds, at the heart of an area where the soil is rich clay. This area used to be densely wooded, predominantly with beech and ash trees. Clearings were made in the woods area with axes, where the sharp edges of flint did the cutting. You can still find the wood in many houses and churches dating from the middle ages.
