The "treasure" at this church as featured in the book would be very difficult to find without the book's directions.
"Set in the north wall, near the north-west buttress of the tower and about seven feet above the ground, is a flint which has been split to reveal its core, exposing the outline of a birds head"
A fossil, thousands and thousands of years old has been set among the stones of the tower. I found it, it's been cleaned up since the photo in the book was taken. Very curious
The first thing to notice as you step into the church is the remains of this wall painting of Saint Christopher, crossing a river full of fish.
The font has lots of C15 carvings but no elaborate font cover this time. Although the Suffolk Churches website has a picture of the font with a cover.
The pulpit is elaborately carved and dates from C17..........even a roof! Maybe to stop bat or bird droppings falling on the preacher?
Suffolk Churches Website the bench ends are some of the best carvings in the county, I think this is C19 carving rather than medieval which are mainly damaged. I read all about
William Dowsing HERE , he was the man given the job of clearing Suffolk churches of imagery during the 1640's.
A well kept church in the centre of this small village
