Church of St Peter and St Paul

Church of St Peter and St Paul
Description


Lavenham's Church of St Peter and St Paul is probably the last of the great Suffolk 'wool churches' to have been completed by 1530 just before the reformation.

The sturdy 141 ft tower is a glorious landmark across the rolling valleys of west Suffolk as you head towards this beautiful medieval town.

Take time to study the fabulous stonework of the exterior before venturing in to see yet more elaborate stone masonry.

Stepping inside, the sheer scale of this church will take your breath away and you can marvel at the Spring chapel, the rich carving in screens and stalls – and the vivid colours of the Victorian glass from the 19th century restoration.
