St Edmund's remains were brought to here in 903 where a shrine was dedicated to him. Less than 50 years later another King Edmund made a major grant of land in 945 to the monastery, securing the whole area of the town within a boundary known as The Banleuca. Bury St Edmunds, as it later became known, was one of the most wealthy and influential Abbeys in England.
