Abbey Gardens at Bury St. Edmunds

My ex-husband's ancestor, Henry Bright (1602-1686) came from Bury St. Edmunds.  He was baptized in St. James there.

While I did not visit St. James today, I did find an interesting stone on the large central monument at the new St. Edmundsbury Cathedral at Abbey Gardens (please note, the date stamp is most certainly incorrect!):

The ruins themselves are gorgeous and I like them better than the gardens.  The historical information is very interesting, and I enjoyed my entire day.  But what really made it cool for me was finding a piece of home-sweet-Massachusetts there.  :D

We will definitely return - it's less than 30 minutes from where we live!
