A wildflower-filled churchyard

All Saints stands at the end of a lane behind the moated Church Farm. It has a charming round tower that is early Norman in origin. Also noteworthy are the massive early thirteenth-century font, medieval benches with animal-shaped ends and some attractive old glass. The Suffolk Wildlife Trust have advised on the management of the churchyard which abounds with wildflowers in the early summer.
