A Puritan church
Designed in 1660 for Puritan worship and virtually unchanged, this little Chapel of Ease is simplicity itself. When Cromwell's Commonwealth ended and the monarchy was restored, neither the returning Stuarts nor the restoring Victorians altered its simple and austere appearance. Built from brick and stone, the chapel has plain glass windows and its original narrow pews (deliberately unsuited to kneeling). The churchyard is spacious and beautiful.

A 12th century church made of “handsome stone” in a tiny parish.
A Fenland church filled with faces
