Trip: From Ancient Chests to Comper: Delightful Churches Around the Suffolk Border
Guided by Chloe Cockerill, visit the churches at East Harling, South Lopham, Eye, Yaxley and Redgrave. East Harling church has remarkable 15th century glass in its east window and two very fine tombs. South Lopham has a Norman tower, some good choir stalls and a very ancient storage chest. Eye has some flushwork on the tower and some glorious work by Comper. Yaxley has magnificent carvings in the spandrels of the porch door, a grand pulpit of 1635 and an interesting but battered screen. Redgrave has an important series of monuments and 13 hatchments, one of the finest sets in England.
