St. Marys Church (Cavendish)

St. Marys is the parish church of the very pretty village of Cavendish in Suffolk.

It appears in many picture postcards, alongside the Village Green and a group of thatched cottages. Cavendish is a serious rival to Finchingfield for the title of England's most photographed village.

Sir John Cavendish, beheaded by the rebels during the Peasants Revolt in 14th century, left money to rebuild the chancel, and this now contains a superb East window.

The nave was rebuilt in 15th century, and contains a working hour glass beside the pulpit.

Also in the nave is a 16h century Flemish alabaster depicting the Crucifixion.
