Bury St Edmunds, Arc Centre – Monday 9th July 2018

We had briefly stopped at Bury St Edmunds last year and liked the look of it, so decided to jump on a train and head back for the day.   There are two branches of Waterstones here – the first we visited is in an open-air shopping complex – it’s clearly quite new and has a very modern feel to it.  The Waterstones is lovely and light and airy.

One of the things we did was to visit the Abbey Grounds to look at the ruined abbey.  The grounds are lovely – there is a large grassed area where the ruins are, with a river (the Lark – I hadn’t heard of that river before) and then more formal gardens closer to St Edmundsbury Cathedral.  If I lived in this town, the Abbey Gardens would make a wonderful place to sit and read!

I think this is a Little Egret…
