Bury St Edmunds
Formerly the County town of West Suffolk and the Capital of East Anglia, and a royal town of the Saxons.
The town has connections with Massachusetts in America, after a number of puritan families left during the Great Migration in 1640 to set up new British Colonies on the North East coast of America.
In recent history, in May 2007, Bury St Edmunds Local election was won by the ‘Abolish Bury Town Council Party’, but they were only in control until June 2007, when they lost the by- election.
It is also home to the UK’s largest British owned brewer, and also Britain’s smallest public house – The Nutshell.
