St Mary's Church, Cavendish, Suffolk
St Mary's Church, Cavendish, Suffolk
One of the most interesting things in the building is not from this church at all. It is a 16th century Flemish reredos, showing the crucifixion. It is among the most splendid art objects in all Suffolk. The whole thing is a highly animated three dimensional relief, with saints, angels and Old Testament figures looking on. It is set in a gorgeous frame by that campest of Anglo-catholic architects, Ninian Comper, most familiar from Eye. It is the sort of thing that has been whisked off to the V&A most places, so the parish here are to be congratulated on keeping it, and celebrating it. You'll find it in the north aisle.
