St Mary's Church, Uggeshall
A little known Suffolk gem
(Photos/words © urban75, May 2007)
Set in a tiny villages north-east of Halesworth, St Mary's church is a beautiful and rather quirky building made up of several parts cobbled together.
Most noticeable is the 19th century clapboard belfry stuck on the stone base of a tower that never got built, with the rest of the building being made up from thatch, flint, whitewash and wood.
Inside, it's full of Victorian detail, with a delightful wooden roof.
Unusual wooden swan.
The path to the road is particularly pleasing.
St Margaret's Church, Stoven, Suffolk
Structurally Norman, this small church was given a full makeover in Victorian times.
Part of the Hundred River Benefice (a group of six Church of England parishes in the north Suffolk countryside), the church has been reopened and is gradually being restored.
