I decided just to run where ever I fancied around town. I headed towards the Railway Station past the Falcon and the Rising Sun in Risbygate Street and then up past the Ipswich Arms and down to the Linden Tree .

Then up by St Johns Street past the Bushel into the centre of town past the Grapes and the Cupola House and down past the Masons Arms. I continued on past the Black Boy and down Whiting Street to the Rose and Crown. I then ran past the Theatre Royal and round by the Dog and Partridge.

To think that so many pubs have closed in Bury but I have still only mentioned just some of the pubs that you can still visit. It would be interesting to find a book listing the closures I can think of half a dozen closures along Kings Road alone, but not always their names such as the Cricketers Arms which I think is now a hairdressers. Further down on the right their was another pub and then there was The Market Tavern which was just off from the mini roundabout as you turn left down Kings Road and in the centre of town the cavernous Griffin and another pub can’t think of the name of it which was situated where the chemist Superdrug is now. Then there was the St Edmunds Head which is now the Cannon Brewery Restaurant.

I am sure there is a book on the pubs of Bury St Edmunds anyone know of it?

I also photographed the Nestle advertising on what must have been a corner shop. More photos to follow.
