Burgate Church, Suffolk

The unusually named Church of St. Mary of Pity sits in the flat landscape of mid-Suffolk and appears to be all on its own amongst a few modern bungalows. It is later than the usual clutch of Suffolk churches, being Decorated in style rather than Perpendicular and is also particularly chunky and solid-looking for Suffolk whose churches are usually more delicate and intricate.

The outside is a little tinkered with by the Victorians under Richard Phipson, but the interior is almost entirely from that period which rather destroys the feel of timelessness that the exterior and surroundings evokes.
