Bury St Edmunds historian Martyn Taylor’s nw book will help you see the town’s past and present together.

Publishers Amberley asked Martyn to write a pocket sized version of his Bury St Edmunds Through Time book, which they published in 2013, for their national History Tour series.

Martyn said: “This is about half the size of the original, but there are some new pictures. It begins with a potted history of Bury because this is aimed at visitors.”

It also has a map showing the location of the pictures, so you can visit the place and see how it looked in the past.

Each picture has a short history of the location, so you learn Mustow Street gets its name from Le Mustowe, The Muster or gathering place and that artist Sybil Andrews designed the heraldic cartouche on what are now the town council offices.

Martyn is doing a signing at Waterstones on May 28 from 1pm to 3pm. The book will also be sold at Moyse’s Hall Museum and the St Edmundsbury Cathederal Bookshop.
