“Unusual roof”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

Definitely worth a visit. Liked the unusual roof, the location and the setting. The church can be found by having a pleasant walk up the hill and via the common. Stunning.

“A' Must See' Chuch”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

We popped in here after visiting Melford Hall and so glad we did. No fee but obviously donations welcome. There is parking on the green just before the hospital. The Church is massive ( bordering on Cathedral size ) and beautifully kept. Do visit the private Chapel on the left of the altar - interesting and virtually untouched. There is a Lady Chapel ( out of the door and turn left ) unusual for a Church to have. It was lovely and peaceful with original woodwork and carvings. Even still having the times table on the wall from the days when it was a school, don't miss out on a visit.

“qiute interesting”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

Some very interesting things about the church like the chapel and the scratch dial.
the first impression inside is one boring big church but it has a lot of little nicks & crannies that make it interesting

“Wednesday lunchtime recitals”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

Worth noting that the church hosts recitals every Wednesday in summer, May through to September, lasting about 40 minutes, starting at 1.10pm. Free to attend, no tickets necessary, but donations asked for. Refreshments available to purchase too. Very pleasant and sociable atmosphere, no pressure, just pure enjoyment. The church is lofty, airy, filled with natural light, beautiful, not to be missed if in the area, worth a detour for sure, any day of the week.

“Take the trouble to visit this gem”
Reviewed 11 March 2014

We popped into this church whilst on a 2 day stay in long melford. The church itself is huge and is full of historical interest in particular the 15th Century stained glass windows which are the best example that i can recall seeing
