Great Barton
, originally called Bertuna, is a thriving village three miles North East of Bury St Edmunds on the A143. It has a population of  2000 people spread across Great Barton, Conyers Green, Cattishall, East Barton and Barton Hamlet. Much of Great Barton is set in the former arboretum and estate of Barton Hall which was destroyed by fire in January 1914. Sir Henry Edward Bunbury was responsible for many of the old buildings that we see in The Street today. Great Barton has strong connections to horse racing, including the Epsom Derby, and also to the former Abbey at Bury St Edmunds.
