History of St Lawrence, Brundish, Suffolk.

The church was founded sometime in the 11th century.  Only the lower three quarters of the western tower remain from this date.  At some point, shortly after 1385, the main body of the church was rebuilt in the perpendicular style, a new west door was inserted and the tower’s height was increased - it is worth noting the fine gargoyles on the north and south sides of the tower.  The tower shows the remains of the west window, and probably a north and south pair of windows, now only the tracery is visible.

The main body of the church is is a light airy space, with fine windows, and a mix of both normal and box-pews.  The positioning of  the box-pew shows that when they were installed the pulpit was probably in the middle of the church.

Near the north door, and bolted to the ground is a single, 15th century, misericord chair, which at some point in the 18th century had the name of J Pollard aged 92 carved into it.  The misericord chair is somewhat the worse for wear, having been attacked by rot and woodworm.

The south porch, although repaired with brick is a fine example of perpendicular architecture.
