Blythburgh Church

Holy Trinity Blythburgh IP19 9LL

Blythburgh's church of Holy Trinity is known as the “cathedral of the marshes”, and with good reason – its tower can be seen long before you reach the village and it has shining beamed ceiling decorated with carved angels that is one of the finest in East Anglia. Look too at the carving at the end of the pews, each one depicting one of the seven deadly sins, and the north door at the back of the church, scorched black in 1577 by the devil in the shape of a ghostly black dog thought to roam the region in the Middle Ages, and the restored priest’s room above the porch – accessible by way of stairs clearly built for people who were smaller than they are today.
