Long Description:
A pleasant country church and there are wonderful views from the tower.

The 15th century tower has a fine dedicatory inscription, which you might miss, screened as it is by a tree. It remembers that the Sulyards and the Cornwallises had it built. Also worthy of note is the extent to which the chancel weeps – that is to say, is at an angle to the nave. This will be even more apparent inside, of course. It is a reminder that naves and chancels were built at different times by different people, often on the site of earlier ones; it should be more of a surprise that so few weep rather than that any do at all. The porch and clerestory are typical Suffolk perpendicular, but on a small, intimate scale.
