History of St Mary’s Framsden, suffolk.

St Mary’s, a Grade 1 listed building, is primarily a 14th century church, although there is some evidence that an earlier Saxon church once stood on this site.  The church contains 3 very good grotesque corbels, well worth a look.

The six, now heavily defaced misericords were probably installed for the use of a community of Poor Clares, who resided in the village during the 14th century.  As usual, the mutilation of the misericords is blamed on the reformation, or the English Civil War, but nothing is documented.

The hammer beam  roof is purportedly 17th century, but like some much of this church’s history the documentation is missing and the truth lies hidden behind local legend.

The church was heavily restored during the 19th century.

As mentioned, St Mary’s is Grade 1 listed, and its import can not be underestimated, as the church was listed as far back as December 1955!
