St ANDREWS, Greensted
Known as 'Greensted Log Church', or simply, 'Log Church', this is reputedly the oldest surviving wooden church in the world, constructed c1060 using split oak logs. It is believed that an earlier church stood on the same site. The church is also famous as a resting place for the body of St Edmund, on its way from London to be finally interred in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, in 1013.
When visiting, bear in mind this is not just a historic building of considerable interest, but also a fully functioning place of worship.
