Type and Period (3)
This church lies within the diocese of St Edmundsbury and Ipswich, the archdeaconry of Ipswich and the deanery of Woodbridge. It has the status of a perpetual curacy (S1).
The structure is: chancel, nave, S porch, round W tower (S1). The tower of the church is Norman and round, although the later buttresses (S2), which are N, S and due W, give it the appearance of an oval shape (S3). A good deal of septaria was used in its construction and it is entered by a simple Norman door from the nave at the W end. The parapet is modern. The font has an octagonal C15 bowl with simple quatrefoil panels; the shaft might be that of an earlier Norman font (S3). The nave and chancel have been rendered. The nave N doorway and chancel S doorway date from circa 1300. The pulpit is an early C19 two-decker (S2) and the church contains early C19 box pews as well (S3). A simple C17 holy table and chest remain and a late C14 piscina is flanked by a dropped window sill sedilia, unusual only in that the splayed jambs are squared for a height of 26 inches above the seat (S3).
