This 15th century church on the outskirts of Ipswich seems to be suffering from everyone having more important things to do than tidy up the churchyard. However, I have seen much worse. There are many interesting points outside to see. The glacial boulders built into the foundations and plinth, for example, are a sign of a very early church. The well executed stone tracery in the windows and the thriftily built clerestory with a small east window and the sundial above the door of the porch are all worthy of note. Inside, the hammerbeam and arch-braced roof is supported on arches with clustered columns. There is a squint in what was the north chapel through to the chancel, where there are some old bench-ends to be seen. There is a very nice memorial to Elizabeth Bull, who died aged 76 in 1634.
