For a parish church, this is quite something. Sitting on top of the rising High Street,nth is is really imposing and handsome. Inside it is big and although not grand, it is a beautiful building. And so light.

Even as an atheist this is a supremely beautiful building and unusually light inside because of the gallery of windows below the roof. The stained glass is beautiful too. Well worth a walk out of the centre of the village to view it.

Long it is, possibly the longest village church in England. Unfortunately, the Lady Chapel making it so, was not accessible. Impressive alabaster bas-relief from 1350, pulpit and reredos.

The church is set on the top of Long Melford Green just to the side of Kentwell Hall - also well worth a visit, along with Melford Hall (National Trust) just across the road. This church is stunning and with the lovely lady chapel at...More
