A handsome old church

This worn but handsome marshland church has a lovely brick-and-stone tower and a lofty interior. The foot of the tower contains a curious cell or oratory.

The church was built in the 15th-century on an older site where Roman as well as Medieval remains have been found.

There is some glorious 20th-century stained glass in the windows and the benches in the chancel have beautifully carved ends.

    A good place ro visit especially combined with nearby Walpole St Peter. Despite the rebuilding work there is much of interest to enjoy especially the village sign and unusual war memorial in the grounds.

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.

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.
