Church of England Diocese of St.Edmundsbury & Ipswich Lakenheath

About Us

Welcome to St Mary's, one of the gems of Suffolk-rich in living history and exquisite craftsmanship of many periods. Lakenheath folk have worshipped here for at least 900 years and today it is still in regular use for the purpose for which it was built. So it is no mere ancient monument, but is a centre of Christian life and actvity, and is indeed a Holy Place, made sacred by centuries of prayer and care.
