St James's Tower, Bury
Artist and engraver: Pickett, William
This is the Norman tower that stands to the south of St James' church. It was originally the gateway to the Benedictine abbey on the site, but was superseded in this function by a great gate built in the mid-14th century. The church itself was built in the 16th century as a pilgrimage station and took use of the Norman tower. St James' has since become the Cathedral Church of Bury St Edmunds.
