Full Description

This church is in the diocese of St Edmundsbury and Ipswich, the archdeaconry of Sudbury and the deanery of Mildenhall. Status: vicarage (S1). It was built to the designs of Matthew Morley in 1895. It replaced an iron church of 1876, which had blown down (S2). The steeple from the iron church was re-used as a bee-hive - see photograph in file (S3). Architecturally, it is a very simple Early English building. It is a dull brick and flint church with a three-bay nave and a lower chancel (S2). The E window in the chancel dates from 1900 and depicts the crucifixion and St James and St Mary. The tower stands at the SE angle of the church, which is made by the junction of the nave and the narrower chancel. It is a small octagonal tower with a spire (S2).
