Bury St Edmunds Abbey Grounds
Here is a photo of the current cathedral and the ruins attributed to St Edmund who was buried here once upon a time (they lost the body?). While having high tea in The Swan in Lavenham, Jack Gove who is a philosophy student and son of a local GP in Preston, informed me that he sang in the choir here. He was the one that encouraged me to have the high tea, the full monty, as it were of English afternoon cuisine. Photo to follow. Thanks Jack for the connection about the time of the reformation in England as well as the tea trade from India and its influence in commerce.
