The church is one of the largest I've visited so far on my tour of Suffolk Churches.
Very difficult to get anywhere to take a photo of the whole church from the churchyard and as usual my photos always make the tower look as if it is leaning! The tower is the reason for this church featuring in the 100 Treasures in Suffolk Churches book. It is a landmark 100 feet tall and was built around 1450.
The church is a very wide church, difficult to get everything into a photo. It was extended and refurbished in the 1800's when churches set about restoring their Catholic roots.
The shrine of Our Lady, set in a tomb recess, dates from 1973 and was carved by Lough Pendred
The alter has 6 tall candles which according to the Suffolk Churches website is unusual and a mark of Anglo-Catholic tradition.
Parts of the roof are painted. Perhaps it was all painted in the distant past.
Just outside the church is the Half Timbered building which was once the Guildhall
Lots more about the church HERE
I'll be going back for the Art Exhibition over the late summer Bank Holiday Weekend and hope to climb the castle mound for better photos of the church
Thank you for comments yesterday
