Wicken, St Laurence

At the east end of the village, this church is in a very rural setting with tall trees around the south side of the churchyard. Don’t miss the fine  early eighteenth-century cartouche monument on the south aisle east wall and cherubic tombstones scattered around. The tranquil interior is largely fourteenth-century. Extra buttressing was required for the north aisle, where the octagonal piers lean outwards. A date of 1695 on one nave beam indicates a repair to the surviving medieval roof.
