A series of millennium celebrations will take place in 2020 to mark 1,000 years since the abbey at Bury St Edmunds was founded.
A new project to preserve the history of Saint Edmund and Bury’s medieval abbey is soon to be launched in the town.
A Bury St Edmunds church which has one of the tallest spires in the county has received initial funding support from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) for major roof repairs.
Finding the body of St Edmund beneath tennis courts in Bury’s Abbey Gardens could see a surge in tourists similar to that experienced by Leicester after the discovery of Richard III’s remains under a car park.
