Thank you All About Ipswich for this post on our medieval church.One of Ipswich’s beautiful medieval churches: St Mary-le-Tower Church Community ✝️
DID YOU KNOW: that a church has been on the site of St Mary-le-Tower for nearly 1,000 years? The Domesday Book of 1086 includes records of a church being on the site; when it had over 26 acres of land and always probably built of wood!
Across its long history, the church has been built, added-to and rebuilt as the world around it changed. In 1561 Queen Elizabeth visited the church, in 1661 a hurricane blew down the spire and in the early 1850s the church was almost totally rebuilt by a local philanthropist; giving us the building we see today.
Up until 2009, when the Cranfield Mill development began, St Mary-le-Tower was the tallest building in Ipswich at 176ft tall.
