St Mary’s Woolpit

the stunning nave, facing east – details of that rood screen to come…
double hammerbeam angel roof! squeak!
Facing west. The Victorians get a thumbs up for most of their sensitive restoration here… for once. Generally I am not a fan of their interfering tidy-up jobs, but this is great. And not too tidy.
The Victoria County History hasn’t made forays into Suffolk since 1911, and never did get around to the parish churches even then – and not being a regular car occupant I am not a Pevsner person – but happily for us all, where the VCH leaves off, Simon Knott picks up with his splendid Suffolk Churches site (Norfolk Churches too.)
