St. Mary’s Church East Bergholt Preservation Society

Famous for it’s bell cage and unfinished tower, St. Mary’s present building of brick, flint and stone (probably from an earlier building) dates from about 1350. Incomplete and roofless, the west tower has remained as a picturesque ruin ever since the Reformation. Various repairs have occurred over the centuries. However in recent times the masonry has been badly decaying and now fragments of mortar and flint have been falling onto the path, causing grave safety concerns.

Emergency repairs must be carried out.
