BUNGAY, consisting of the parishes of Holy Trinity and St. Mary, is a market town on the borders of Norfolk, a polling-place for the Eastern division of the county, and station on the Waveney Valley branch of the Great Eastern railway: it is 113 miles from London by rail, 14 south-east from Norwich by road, 30 north-east from Ipswich, 40 north-east-by-east from Bury St. Edmunds, 20 south-west from Yarmouth, 16 west from Lowestoft and 6 from Beccles, in Wangford hundred and union. Beccles and Bungay county court district, Wangford rural deeanery, Suffolk archdeaconry and Norwich diocese.

Bungay is pleasantly situated on the river Waveney, which is navigable up to this town, and by means of it a trade is carried on in corn, malt, flour, coal and lime. The two county bridges over the river are modern erections: the one at the foot of Earsham street is a single brick arch, and that at the foot of Bridge street, originally of wood, was replaced by an iron structure in 1880. The principal streets, leading to Norwich. Yarmoouth, Bury and Ipswich, are broad and well-paved, and contain many good houses and shops.

The town is lighted with gas; and the inhabitants are amply supplied with excellent water from the numerous springs with which the town and its neighbourhood abound. The houses have mostly been erected since 1668, when nearly the whole town was destroyed by fire. The expenses of lighting and paving are defrayed out of town funds, the rents of which amount to about 400 yearly; the surplus is partly applied to charitable purposes, but chiefly to general improvements in the town.

Bungay contains two churches. St. Mary, formerly the chapel of a Benedictine monastery, the ruins of which form a pleasing object at the east end, is a flint and stone edifice, in the Perpendicular style, consisting of nave and aisles (without chancel) and square tower with four crocketed pinnacles, a peal of 8 bells and a clock: the tower was repaired, and the whole fabric restored at a cost of 3,000 in 1879: the seats are entiely free and unappropriated: the organ has been thorouhly restored at a cost of 140: there are five stained windows inthe north aisle, also two memorial stained windows, one to the Mann fanily at the east end of the north aisle, and one over that portion of the nave used as a chancel in memory of Lois Camell, an old parishioner. The register dates from the year 1538. The living is a vicarage, yearly value 200 and house, in the gift of the Church Patronage Society and held since 1881 by the Rev. Trenham King Weatherhead LL.B. of St. John's College, Cambridge.

The church of the Holy Trinity is a very ancient structure, supposed to have been built in the eleventh century; it is built of rubble and faced on the south side with flints, and consists of nave and aisles (without chancel), with round tower, on the top of which are battlements, and contains several shields bearing the arms of Thomas de Brotherton, Earl of Norfolk, and son of Edward the First, and the Montacute, Bigod, Beauchamp, and other families; and a brass of Margaret Dillinger, who was prioress here, and a monument to the Rev. Thomas Wilson, who died 1774. The register dates from the year 1557. The living is a vicarage, yearly tithe rent charge 256 with residence and 10 acres of glebe lands, in the gift of the Bishop of Norwich and held since 1834 by the Rev. Thomas Collyer M.A. of St. John's College, Cambridge, who is also rector of and resides at Gislingham; the Rev. James Greenall M.A. of Tribity College, Dublin, has been curate in charge since 1874.

Here is a Catholic chapel dedicated to St. Edmund, in St. Mary's street, also a Baptist chapel in Neatgate street, a Congregational in Upper Olland street, a Primitive Methodist in South End road and a Wesleyan in Trinity street.

The Cemetary of Bungay Trinity contains two brick mortuary chapels and covers an area of two acresl it is situated at the south end of the town and is under the management of a Burial Board of 9 members.

The charities of the town, distributed to the poor, amount to about 62 8s. yearly (33 8s. St. Mary's) (20 Holt Tribity), besides which Lord Northampton's charity consists of an annuity of 26 for each parish, generally granted to decayed tradesmen or widows of same. There are several almshouses in different parts of the town, six having been founded in 1577 by Christine Wharton; those founded by Thomas Popson M.A. in 1592, consist of six rooms for widows only: there are also the Town almshouses of twelve rooms, and in 1848 Mrs. Eliza Dreyer founded and endowed widows' homes for five persons.

Here are several clothing societies, a lying-in charity, and a dispensary.

Here was formerly a theatre which has been converted into a Corn Hall, but little busines is done. The Market Place, in the centre of the town, stands on gently rising ground and formerly contained two crosses, but has now only one, an octagonal building, with dome-shaped roof, on the top of which, standing on a pedestal, is a handsome full-length figure of Justice, holding the scales in the left hand and a gildred sword in the right hand. The market day is Thursday.

Bungay is the headquarters of the F Company 2nd Volunteer Battaion Norfolk Regiment.

At Ditchingham, on the Norfolk side, near the town, is a large silk manufactory belonging to Messrs. Grout and Co. of Norwich, who employ a large number of females. In the town are the extensive printing offices and stereotype and electrotype foundry of Messrs. Clay, Sons and Taylor, of Bread Street hill, Londonm formerly belongong to Messrs. Childs and Son, established by their predecessors in 1795; also flour mills, steam saw mills, iron foundry and malt houses.

Northward of the town is an extensive common, of 408 acres, almost surrounded by the Waveney; and on the south side of the town is Stow Fen, containing 68 acres, and under the management of the Fen reeves elected by the owners.

At the period of the Norman survey Bungay was divided into several manors and estates, which were retained by the Conqueror in his own hands under the stewardship of William de Noiers; they are now the property of the Duke of Norfolk, having descended through a long line of ancestors from Roger Bigod, to whom they were granted by the Conqueror soon after the Domesday Book was compiled. Reginald de Bungay was Lord Mayor of London in the year 1241-1242.

Part of the castle is still standing: it was built on an eminence by the Bigods, Earls of Norfolk, and in the reign of Stephen it seems to have been considered impregnable by Hugh Bigod, to whom the following rhyme, part of an old ballad, is attributed:—

The ruins are interesting and of some extent, and are pleasantly situated, overlooking the Waveney valley.

On the high lands, about a mile from the town, on the Flixton road, is Upland Hall, the residence of William Hartcup esq. surrounded by grounds well laid out.

In the vicinity of the town are several extensive and picturesque ruins of ancient abbeys and castle, which are descrived in this work under the headings of the parishes on which they are situate.

The principal landowners are Wm. Hartcup esq. Clement Taylor esq, Lord Waveney and Sir Edward C. Kerrison bart.

The area of St. Mary is about 20 acres; rateable value, 4,611 5s.; of Holy Trinity, 1,934 acres, rateable value. 6,096: the population in 1881 of St. Mary was 1,763, and of Holy Trinity 1816; total, 3,579.
