St.Peter & St.Paul's church
St.Peter & St.Paul's church
Fantastic grade I listed, late Perpendicular church, completed just before the Reformation in 1525
The Church of St Peter and St Paul, Lavenham
The Church of St Peter and St Paul dominates Lavenham and is evidence of the vast wealth that was concentrated in this area of East Anglia during the Tudor period. The building of the church was funded chiefly by the wealthy cloth merchants, particularly the de Vere and Spring families whose emblems can be seen around the church.

The building, which is late perpendicular in its design, was built between the 1480s and the 1520s, the period of Lavenhamís greatest prosperity as a cloth town (LinkExternal link Suffolk Churches).

The Church is a Grade I Listed Building (LinkExternal link British Listed Buildings)
