St Andrew, Freckenham, Suffolk - 28th September 2005

St Andrew's church is pleasantly situated close to the borders with Cambridgeshire at the end of a dead end road from the small village.

The north aisle is 15th century.

The church was heavily restored in the 19th century by George Street, including the tower (built in the 1880s following the collapse of the original)  which apes the style of the 14th century. 

The small dormer window at the junction of the nave and chancel (there is no chancel arch, the roof is continuous) might have lit a rood loft, but is in fact a Victorian addition.

The church was locked when I visited, so I missed the medieval carved bench ends and other treasures inside.  I have since discovered there is a key holder, but I failed to notice the information in the porch.
