St Peter, Ousden, Suffolk - 30th September 2005

This charming little church is cruciform in layout and it is clear from the former roof line on the east face of the tower that there was once a larger chancel.

Here is a view of the nave looking east through the two tower arches into the chancel.

The space under the tower has been furnished with choir stalls.  The Norman arches are quite low, making the chancel and nave feel very separate.  Indeed it must be very difficult for the congregation to hear or see any of the "action" in the chancel.

Here are the font and pipe organ, which is situated at the west end.

I found this church open, despite the terrible wet day and the rather late hour.
