The Heritage Partnership is all about collaboration between a range of different organisations, so that this historic site can be preserved and conserved for future generations. Its first action was to commission Dr Richard Hoggett, an experienced archaeologist who specialises in this area, to carry out a full Heritage Assessment of the whole of the surviving parts of the Abbey Precinct.  This was funded by St Edmundsbury Borough Council and Historic England and completed in June 2018, it can be accessed below
