I thought this beautyful church was builded about 900 years ago but in the web I read, that it was created in 1888. Is this right? The shot was made in a beautyful sunlight. L

Hi Gernot

It seems strange to come across such a recently built Church, and I must admit I thought it was a lot older. The Church of St. Mary de Wyche at Wychbold seems to have been built in 1888, by the local Amphlett family and John Corbett who was the owner of Salt Works. He probably thought he could secure a place in heaven!

The church is built on a salt seam which has caused a certain amount of subsidence, evidenced by its leaning church tower and a pronounced and sometimes disconcerting slope to the floor in the main aisle.

I think there must be a much older church in the vicinity.

Best wishes Peter
