St BARTHOLOMEW’S, Orford

St BARTHOLOMEW’S, Orford

Orford's parish church was originally built in the 12th century - and its grand, but ruined, chancel can still be seen in the churchyard. The surviving building is still large, dates from 14th century and has been much restored. Amongst its treasures are a number of surviving 15th and 16th century brasses and a remarkable font. Benjamin Britten loved the church; some of the composer's works premiered here and concerts are regularly held.
