The main A45 road from the Midlands to the east coast passed straight through Bury St Edmunds, entering by Newmarket Road.
It passed up Risbygate Street, along Brentgovel Street and Looms Lane, turning down Northgate Street and into Angel Hill. From there it passed up Crown Street, turning left into Westgate Street, then on via Southgate Street towards Ipswich. Information taken from Philip Daws book Local History. Bury St Edmunds.
