Bury in Bloom and Greene King have unveiled a new sculpture celebrating Bury St Edmunds’ heritage on a prominent roundabout.

St Edmund’s Crown on the Cullum Road/Nowton Road roundabout is made from metal and willow and was created by sculptor Elizabeth Cooke, from Lark Valley

Willow.

The inspirations for the sculpture are the crests for Greene King and Bury Town Council.

The crest for the town council shows the wolf guarding the head of St Edmund with three crowns beneath the wolf.

Rooney Anand, Greene King chief executive, said: “A few years ago, we transformed the Greene King logo to include St Edmund’s crown and arrows. We believe using his distinctive crest within our logo design is a symbol of our commitment to and pride of our home town. We are thrilled with the willow crown and arrows on our sponsored roundabout.”
