St Mary The Virgin, Erwarton, Suffolk IP9 1LL View on map
Parish church is dated from the 15th century, including the west tower, but the variety in the facework, especially the surviving areas of small coursed field flints, all suggest a more complex chronology and earlier origins. (a 14th century window survives in the chancel, and the chancel arch may also date from this period). The tower was struck by lightning in 1837 and repaired mainly in brickwork, which included the partial blocking of the belfry windows.
Daily: 8.30am - dusk. The vestry, with access to the tower is locked, but can be opened if the key holder is contacted. On rare occasions the door may be locked but key holders phone and address details are readily available.
