Getting here

Welcome to this web-page. We hope that you will come and visit our church and share in our services.

Kettleburgh belongs to the family of Anglican churches covering the villages of

Brandeston, Campsea Ashe, Easton, Hacheston, Kettleburgh, Marlesford, & Parham.

A church has stood in Kettleburgh since at least Saxon times.  Domesday book tells us that in King Edward's time Edric Grim held the manor of Kettleburgh as one manor, for four carucates of land, half under the patronage of St Etheldreda's (Ely Abbey), and half under that of Edric of Laxfield.  In 1086 it was held by Count Alan.  The present church dates mainly from the 14th century, but the structure incorporates earlier work, for during repairs carried out in 1952 remains of a small window, thought to be Saxon, were uncovered.  There is also a 13th century coffin slab in the chancel, and a stone coffin built into the south east wall of the nave - presumably pre-dating the construction of the wall.
