Building information:

Built: Unknown or not given.

Current use: Worship.

Harrison's description (1911):

Restored and enlarged in 1878 and 1907. Lower part of tower is Nor.; two bays of nave are late Nor.; one bay is E.E. Of the rest of this building there is not much that is old, except the Balesford Chantry (Perp.) and the sun dial, dated 1599. The fine E. window, with representations of Henry III and Eleanor of Provence, was sold to Horace Walpole and removed to Strawberry Hill; thence it has passed to the neighbourhood of Bury St. Edmunds. Note child's coffin-slab with Keltic interlaced patterns and crosses, etc., probably 8th century work.
