The centre of Bury St Edmunds was laid out in a grid pattern by Abbot Baldwin almost 1000 years ago. Forward thinking, perhaps, but what passed for traffic in those days was neither as busy nor as large as what we have now. The streets are narrow, and the city centre is liberally supplied with double yellow lines, which mean no parking at any time. There are pay-and-display parking spaces in Abbeygate Street and Cotton Lane, but only eight bays in each. Churchgate Street has 27 pay-and-display parking spaces, Guildhall Street has 40 and Looms Lane 31. Hatter Street has 16, Lower Baxter Street 7, Springfield Road 5 (payable only by phone) and Whiting Street has 9. That’s 151 parking spaces spread across nine sites. Maximum stay in all cases is two hours.
