The steeple of St Mary’s dominates the skyline from whatever direction you approach. Our church has evolved over the centuries from its Norman origins like many other churches in Suffolk, but it is special because of its magnificent double hammer beam roof, angel carvings, fourteenth century porch and carved pew-ends, which make it one of the finest village churches in East Anglia.

Over the centuries its porch has stood proudly over the south door, built in the fourteenth century from donations. Today’s population has also made its mark; the village raised over £50,000 in two years to enable vital repairs to be carried out. A guide is available within the Church which explains most of the features inside and outside of the building.
