St Mary's church > Link is situated in the grounds of Somerleyton Hall > Link and can be accessed via a short driveway which turns off the B1074 (Blundeston Road). Built in the 14th century the church still contains a number of historic features, the oldest being a sepulchral altar tomb > Link of dark marble which stands against the north chancel wall. It commemorates Sir Richard Jernegan, Privy Councellor to Henry VIII, who died in 1446. The rood screen > Link dates from the 15th century and depicts 16 saints. The octagonal font > Link dates from the early 15th century. A C17 memorial in black and white marble, commemorating Sir John Wentworth (lord of the manor during the time of Cromwell) and his wife, is on the north chancel wall > Link. The church had fallen into disrepair by the beginning of the 19th century and was extensively restored by Sir Morton Peto, who took over the estate in 1844 and amongst many other works of improvement carried out the repairs to the church. St Mary's is open every day.
