Long Description:
"The village takes the form of its name because Suffolk has two Stratfords. The other, Stratford St Mary, is thirty miles down the A12 and no relation. Stratford St Andrew sits directly on the busy road, joined at the hip to Farnham, the main village of the adjoining parish. The tower is tall and plain, with simple decorated bell windows. Their broken tracery suggests that in the 1990s the tower had been the subject of some structural movement. A marvellous grotesque looks eastward over the roofs towards Farnham church on the next hill."
