All Saints' Church, Ellough, Suffolk

A striking hilltop church

This 14th-century hilltop church with its square tower stands boldly above a narrow valley south of Beccles.

The pulpit has the names of 19th-century laborours carved into its base and also interesting are the 15th-century font, a great collection of brasses and the restored cambered tie-beam timber roof with braces.

The original south porch was added in 1602. Butterfield restored the church in 1882 and was responsible for the east window and reredos.

Keyholder

If the access information for this church is listed as 'Keyholder nearby', this means that the key is kept by one of our invaluable volunteer 'keyholders', who usually live just a short walk from the church and can give visitors the key; sometimes this is a nearby hotel, pub, library, art gallery or other venue. You will find instructions explaining how to get the key when you arrive at the church.

Disabled access

There is a step in the church.

Facilities

Due to the historic nature of our buildings, only a very small number of them have heating or running water meaning that they can be cold, and very rarely have toilet facilities. The lighting is usually operated via a 'push button' timer or a motion sensor. We do apologise for any inconvenience the lack of facilities may cause.
