Church Crawl: Wenhaston & Bramfield

Depart 10am from Snape Maltings, returning 3pm

Part of Friends Events

Discover more about the history of our surroundings on this exploration of some of Suffolk’s most fascinating churches.

We’ll start by visiting the atmospheric St Peter’s in Wenhaston. Dating from the 12th century, St Peter’s also houses the imposing ‘Wenhaston Doom’, a very rare depiction of the Last Judgement erected c.1480. We’ll then travel to nearby Bramfield St Andrew’s, with its unusual thatching, ornate 16th century rood screen and separate round tower – the only example in the county. Afterwards, we’ll be treated to a delicious buffet lunch at the Queen’s Head, just 2 minutes’ walk from the church.

Our fascinating tour will be led by Suffolk church expert Roy Tricker, who has published extensively on East Anglian ecclesiastical history.
