www.suffolkchurches.co.uk - a journey through the churches of Suffolk

   

All things considered, these are my favourite sixty Suffolk churches, or at least as they stood in April 2019when I last updated them. When I visit a church, the atmosphere is at least as important a part of the 'wow factor' for me as any major historical survivals. I generally prefer smaller churches to bigger ones. Architecture seems less interesting to me than a sense of the way the building has been used and adapted over the centuries. I like churches to be rough and ready rather than over-neat, but I do like them to be well kept and have a bit of modern work in. I'd be very interested to know if your Top 60 varies greatly.
