The home of a great Abbey the scene of a vigourous struggle between town and church, Bury St Edmunds owed its prosperity to its textile production and marketing and to its position as the centre of an urban region that defied conventional political boundaries to extend the influence of the town far beyond its gates." – from front fold over panel blurb.
