How old is it?
St Mary’s is built on an old pagan holy site, rededicated by early Christians and the chancel dates back to the 13th century. The nave, tower and porch were built in the 15th century. The Reformation of the 16th century saw the removal of visual aids such as wall paintings and the great rood loft as more people began to read the Bible.
The church is open daily so go and have a wander round. You can cycle there from Framlingham using the Angels & Pinnacles Church Heritage Trails No. 3.
