Things to do in Somerleyton

St Mary’s Church

Situated about a mile from the village and within Somerleyton Hall’s extensive grounds, stands St Mary’s Church

St Mary’s Church was built in the 15th century and remodelled in 1854 by Samuel Morton Peto. Usually open from spring through autumn, the church is home to one of the finest examples of a medieval screen in Suffolk dating from the 15th century. Examine the top of the screen closely; it is a fantastic example of medieval woodwork, with finely carved trefoil arches that bring to mind lacework.

There is a 15th-century octagonal font and two of the north nave windows contain 14th-century Flemish glass, brought over from St Olave’s Priory, which you can reach from Haddiscoe station.
