Sunday afternoon in Bury St. Edmunds

At the weekend took a short afternoon trip to Bury St. Edmunds. Never been there before but it is a lovely part of the world. The cathedral and surrounding grounds are lovely for a wander round.

The interior of the cathedral is equally impressive and was surprisingly welcoming. You may not be allowed to take pictures but my camera is fairly discrete so managed to sneak a quick one.

Outside the cathedral you have these amazing houses built into the surrounding ruins. Quite an amazing bit of architecture and we did wonder what the inside of these houses might look like.

One of Bury’s most famous “landmarks” I believe is “The Nutshell”, which apparently is Britain’s smallest pub. Quite the achievement but you do wonder who the regulars are, assuming you can only fit around 4 people in the place.

And in the car park outside the cathedral was this lovely Austin Healey Sprite in immaculate condition, thought I would grab a quick pic.

Well Bury has been added to the list. Lovely place for an afternoon wander round. Only thing it was missing was a river! 🙂
