Long Description:
St Andrew's Church, Walberswick is a Grade I listed parish church in the Church of England in Walberswick.

It wasn't unusual for 15th century Suffolk communities to rebuild their churches in the fashionable perpendicular style. That happened here - or, not quite. In most other parishes, the rebuilding of the church happened on the site of the old one, and often incorporated bits of the former fabric. Here, the new church replaced an old one that was more than a mile away.
Approaching from the south east, the grand tower conceals the fact that the walls of the nave and chancel are a curtain, surrounding an open space. Within this is a smaller church.
