St Andrew's Church, Bramfield, Suffolk
St Andrew's Church, Bramfield, Suffolk
Bramfield is about 2 miles south of Halesworth on the A144 road. The church lies just behind the Queen's Head Public House on the west side of the road. Churches with round towers are rare in Britain apart from Norfolk and Suffolk. Although there are nearly 200 examples in these counties, the tower of St Andrew's is unique in Suffolk as it is detached from the church. The tower is probably Norman around the 12th Century and is 43 foot 6 inches high and with wall thickness of 4 foot 6 inches. There are 5 bells the earliest dating from 1440. The church itself is entirely 14th century and replaced one that was mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086. LinkExternal link
