Church of St Mary, Cavendish - West Suffolk

Church dating from the C14, prominently situated in the Cavendish Conservation Area at the east end of the green. Unusual features include the vaulted parvise and external arched timber bell cage and flagpole combined, which sits on the tower parapet. There is some deterioration of masonry on the tower. The flagpole has begun to lean, possibly because the plated joint at low level is becoming ineffective.
