TL8564 : Charter Square, Bury St Edmunds

taken 9 years ago, near to Bury st Edmunds, Suffolk, Great Britain

Charter Square, Bury St Edmunds
Charter Square, Bury St Edmunds
The central square of the new 'arc' shopping development has been named 'Charter Square' in recognition of the Magna Carta and the various market charters granted to the town. The five ‘Charter Towns’, the places associated with the granting of Magna Carta, are Bury St Edmunds, Runnymede, Canterbury, St. Albans and the City of London. Each town hosts celebrations once every fifteen years; Bury St Edmunds has hosted the commemoration four times, in 1959 when a Magna Carta pageant was held in the Abbey Gardens, in 1974, 1989 and 2004.

This photo was taken early in the morning when few people were about; an hour later and the square was crowded with shoppers.
