Tour SuffolkSuffolk (Pevsner Buildings of England S.) In this agricultural county of East Anglia, "scenery and buildings are a delight", wrote Pevsner. Numerous medieval houses and magnificent flint-faced churches with fine roofs and rich furnishings bear witness to the prosperity brought by the late medieval cloth trade. Castles are nobly represented by the unusual polygonal keep of Orford and the curtain-walled Framlingham, and great houses by a notable sequence of brick buildings of the sixteenth century. Among the coastal settlements are the lost town of Dunwich and picturesque Southwold; the varied inland towns range from Lavenham, remarkable for its exceptionally well preserved timber-framed buildings, to Bury St Edmunds, where fine Georgian houses are gathered around the precinct of the vast Norman abbey.

Haunted Bury St EdmundsHaunted Bury St Edmunds (Haunted Britain) Bury St Edmunds and the surrounding area are places of deep spiritual significance both within East Anglia and in Great Britain as a whole and a belief in ghosts are aspects of this deeper pattern. This book is based on spooky stories based on life-long traditions which have been handed down from earlier generations. Belief in the power of God and St Edmund still has a strong resonance in the town and reverberates across time into the twenty-first century. Against this backdrop, Bury St Edmunds may be considered a haunted area both metaphorically and literally and the book gives a comprehensive summary of the spectral residents of the town and its environs, preserving a permanent record of eerie experiences and beliefs..

Suffolk, Norfolk and parts of Cambridgeshire were at that time not separate entities but collectively the territory of the Kingdom of the East Angles.
