Blythburgh



Blythburgh Church stands in the archetypal Anglo-Saxon setting, on a headland by an estuary, commanding the area around it. The present church is late mediaeval and glorious – and huge! – and has a large open interior currently benefitting from a rewire. The pew ends are among its finest treasures, and the one pictured here might seem very pious – until you learn that is a representation of Hypocrisy. There’s a lesson there somewhere. Warm thanks to the good parishioners of Blythburgh and the Sole Bay Team who keep the church open and in good use and condition despite its size so outmatching that of the community it serves.
