This place has a terrific history, which is well documented with various displays and brochures. The dimensions of the church are amazing for such a small town with it measuring 168 feet long & 65 feet wide, reflecting the historic wealth of the area. Parts of the church date back to 1220 and there are some wonderful features to view, namely The Angel Roof, which is probably one of the finest in the country. Carvings on the end of the pews in very intricate. The congregation have also put together a display that takes you through the centuries, giving details of the town, church & monarchy at the time, which is very well done & interesting.
There is no entry fee but donations are always welcome. normally closes at about 4.00p.m. each day.
Behind the church is a row of Almshouses dating back to 1722 but fully renovated in 1976 & then updated with local support in 2008.
A wonderful church & well worth a visit.

St Mary's has enormous historical significance to the town of Mildenhall and the Church of England.
It has reasonable opening hours and the traveller should avail themselves of the Guide available which depicts, among other insights - the iron arrows still imbedded in the wooden angels in the rafters.

An small active church that has preserved years of history and illustrates what it may have been like hundreds of years ago.

It's a sad fact of life today that many churches are closed against the public. Well, St Mary's is open every day and is well worth a visit if you're in the area.

This is a large church with stained glass and a lovely air of piece. Look up and see the wooden angels supporting the roof.

A visit at Christmas will find the entire church filled with Christmas trees which have been decorated by local schools and organisations.

Besides the natural beauty of the church, surprisingly there were boards around the church giving the histories of the town, Suffolk, and England. A MUST SEE for history buffs interested in the deeper understanding of medieval life in England.

Lovely church situated in the heart of Mildenhall. Wonderful Angel Roof is well worth a visit and if you are around at Christmas time the local community supplies decorated trees through the church.

Mildenhall is such a cute little village and this church is beautiful and worth seeing. To be honest it was the only thing I saw in town worth checking out.
