Chedburgh, Suffolk

Having just created an index for the blog I've discovered some missing visits, the first of which is All Saints.

Locked with no keyholder listed this Victorian church has very little, apart from location, to recommend it and even the location is slightly dubious due to the busy A143 running beside it. I've visited twice now and on balance this is not my cup of tea and it sounds like a dull interior.

ALL SAINTS. Nave and chancel of septaria and flint, and grey brick N tower of 1842 with spire. The chancel is also of 1842, but the E window with reticulated tracery is surely original. Nave of c. 1300 with renewed lancet and Y-tracery windows. Original the shafting of one S window. Pretty quatrefoil nave W window. No furnishings of interest. - STAINED GLASS. Some old fragments in the E window.
