SELLERS INSIGHT One of the key features we will miss is the proximity to the town centre which is only a 5 minute walk via Long Brackland and St Johns Street which has its own mix of eclectic individual shops before getting to the market square. It's great not to have to worry about driving and parking as most things are within walking distance. We originally purchased the property as we were looking for an old property that had not been overly modernised and somewhere that was walking distance of local nurseries, schools and shops. The house has a cosy living room for the winter and great patio area and garden for entertaining in the summer.
The house was once the home of the author Henry Cockton, (1807 - 1853) who wrote Valentine Vox, and he is commemorated on a plaque on the front of the property as well as in the cathedral churchyard in the centre of Bury st Edmunds.
