St Edmundsbury is in Suffolk, and is the name of a borough council whose headquarters are in Bury St Edmunds. The town and council are named after St Edmund the Martyr who is believed to have been killed by the Vikings in the 9th century. He was king of the region of East Anglia from 855 until his death in 869. Bury St Edmunds is a historic market town and in the Middle Ages it would have attracted pilgrims who wished to visit the shrine of St Edmund. Much of its wealth in those times came from the lucrative wool trade.
