2/54 Church of All Saints (Formerly listed as Remains 14.7.55 of Church of All Saints)

- II

Former parish church, disused since before 1900, and now a roofless shell. C13 and later. Flint rubble with freestone dressings. A small, narrow west tower in 4 stages: remains of an embattled parapet with panels of flint flushwork. On the south face are 2 panels with the crowned monogram SM, one on each side of a central panel with a circle ornamented with mouchettes. Below the parapet a gargoyle head on the south side. The top stage has 2-light cusped early C14 windows to each face. The west window of the first stage was apparently the same, but the tracery is now fragmentary. The side walls of the nave and chancel stand to the tops of the windows, but all are gaping holes except for the 2 openings at the west end of the nave, which have the remains of lancets with trefoil heads and very deep inner splays. The east wall stands to full height, with the tracery of a 3-light window with trefoil-headed lancets. The church was formerly thatched. In 1933, when it was already much decayed, its fittings were removed: the early C15 traceried font to Lakenham church, the Stuart pulpit altar rails, holy table, font cover, and other fittings, to Riddlesworth. For a description of the church in 1933, see Munro Cautley 'Suffolk Churches and their Treasures' p.285.
