Bury St Edmunds Abbey gate & car park
Bury St Edmunds Abbey gate & car park
Located adjacent to the Abbey Gate, this car park houses the "Pillar of Salt", a Grade II listed road sign. It is described in its listing as being "individual and probably unique". According to the plaque set at the foot of the sign, the "Pillar of Salt" is the first internally illuminated road sign in the country. Designed by Basil Oliver, architect for the St Edmundsbury Borough Council in 1935, it had to be granted special permission because the height of the letters and numbers did not conform to regulations.
