St Andrew’s Church in Walberswick is arguably one of Suffolk’s most dramatic ruins.

St Andrew’s was built to replace an older church about a mile away on marshes south of the modern village. There is nothing left of this church now.

By the end of the C15th St Andrew’s was one of grandest parish churches in England and similar in design to nearby Southwold and Blythburgh.

The church is open for visitors every day and, walking among the ruins, you can still get an idea of the grandeur of the original church with its four altars and lavish flint decoration under the old east window.
