All Saints, Ramsholt.

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

To find a Church in the middle of nowhere is not that unusual in Suffolk but All Saints has to be one of the most remote. Access is via a track.. or by walking across fields.

The tower, from what I was told, dates bcd to Roman times and had a defensive purpose prior to the building of the church... Apparently, it was used to keep an eye out for those pesky Vikings....

May be remote but you record it for us beautifully, and thanks for the history. L&F.

Regards, Rosa.

Hi there Rosa :-) Thanks for the YSL - If you come to Suffolk again, then this spot is worth a look.... Close by is the Ramsholt Arms so vittles will not be a problem after (or before) a good walk :-)

Cheers

Steve

There is a church very similar to this near Swardeston in Norfolk Steve, and it is of similar age too. Those pesky Vikings had a lot to answer for, but without them we wouldn't have such glorious churches. ;)

Cheers, Amelia

Hi there Amelia LONG time no hear :-) Ooh, I will have to check it out... I love these old places though more for their historical significance than the religious :-)

Norfolk has some great ruins... like this one

"Pesky vikings".... Don't let Sandy Toksvig hear you say that...
