If you drive through Tattingstone in Suffolk and alongside Alton Water, you will see what appears to be an old church complete with tower, by the roadside. Closer inspection will reveal that it is not a church at all but three cottages disguised as a church! This fine folly was built in 1760 by the local Squire, Edward White M.P. He had a good view of his ‘old church’ from his fine house on the other side of the valley.
