Seek out the glorious stained glass windows which somehow escaped the Reformation (apparently they were too high for the iconoclasts to be bothered with). Also amazing brasses and an alabaster nativity older even than the church. Fascinating how medieval wealth expressed itself in enormous, light-filled churches in even quite modest villages.

we had time to spare so decided to walk up to the church for a look. The interior was beautiful with lovely stained glass windows and floral displays. Well worth a visit.

An Impressive and wonderful Medieval church which stands out as you enter Long Melford. The stained glass windows are absolutely wonderful. The sunlight coming through them highlighted the outstanding interior architecture and other features. So much history and well worth making it a stopping point if travelling nearby. I could not find any parking within the grounds only a drop... More

The parish church of Long Melford is situated on the rise at the very top of the village. It's classical English churchyard setting is beautiful. The church is a large one, one of the longest in the country and has an unusual detached Lady Chapel (the entrance of which is clearly signposted from the South porch). The nave is wonderfully...

Holy Trinity is a wonderful building steeped in history. There is lots to see and you can pick up a leaflet for taking with you as you tour round. There is a small chapel for private prayer. A very special and peaceful place to visit.

We stayed in Long Melford recently and this gorgeous church was just behind our hotel. The church is so very attractive from the outside and the roof tops were covered in white doves cooing the morning we visited. Inside the church there is a lot to see of historical interest. Well worth a visit.

This is so worth a look. The wood carvings are incredible. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Look at the tiled floor patterns too. Stunning. It is very well looked after by local volunteers. Fascinating story about the stained glass windows from which the drawings for Alice in Wonderland's duchess were influenced. Lots to see.

Stunning wooden ceiling. Also some green men in the stained glass windows and a tiny circle of three hares (as commonly seen in Devon churches). The lady chapel is also well worth a visit, again some beautiful wood carvings in the ceiling. A lovely chap gave us some info on the history as he was locking up - closes at... More
