Blunham Church and Rectory
Blunham Church and Rectory
An interesting pair of buildings seen through the bare trees of early spring. The church has an unusual double dedication to St James & St Edmund. Parts of it date from Norman times but the extraordinary ironstone tower with its buttresses and pinnacles is dated 1883. The Rectory with its complicated roof and chimneys was built in 1874 in yellow brick, probably to the design of the Bedford architect John Usher. Pevsner characterises it as "huge and grim".
