Norman Tower Bury St Edmunds
TL 856-642 Suffolk England
The Norman Tower of Bury St Edmunds Benedictine Abbey is a magnificent stone great gatehouse. Designed to be the gateway for the Abbey Church, it is still the belfry for the Church of St James. This early to mid 12th century four storey gate-hall was restored in Victorian times and is entered through a single archway. Nearby is the Great Gate.
Norman Tower is located in the city centre, off Angel Hill. 28 miles east of Cambridge, on the A14.
The site is managed by St Edmundsbury Borough Council and is freely accessible in daylight hours.
There are car parks nearby.
