St Edmund, Bromeswell, is a small brick and flint structure, which incorporates structural features of several eras. Notably, the Normans undertook the rebuilding on the site of the Saxon church on rising ground and near to crossroads. The interior offers a simple and quiet charm to its visitors. One-steps down into the nave via the carved wooden entrance door. The walls are white lime washed on rendered brick and flints.

The church interior is very is small in proportion, with a narrow nave leading up through two steps to the additional Victorian chancel, some 15m x 6m. This in effect has doubled its size for worship. At the juncture there is on the south wall a door leading through stairway to what was a gallery and the original outer east wall.

Amazingly this narrow nave has a very high hammer beam and arched braced collar roof. H Munro Cautely maintains that this construction was an early experiment in hammer beam roofs of this style.

Peace and serenity abound for worship
