Marlesford St Andrew


The Parish

The parish of Marlesford lies in eastern Suffolk about 2 miles northeast of the small market town of Wickham Market. Marlesford is a small and compact village gathered around its Hall and sited a half mile north of the A12 road which connects Ipswich & Lowestoft. Marlesford's economy, then as well as now, would have been dominated by farming, arable on higher ground and pastures in the watermeadows of the nearby streams. A small tributary of the River Alde drains the parish eastwards the short distance to join that river near Blaxhall and then runs to the nearby North Sea through the port of Aldeburgh. Marlesford at around 20 metres above the sea, some 10 metres higher than that tributary, in gentle countryside where local heights reach only to about 40 metres within a couple of miles of the village. Even by Suffolk standards Marlesford parish was small, covering just under 1,300 acres it would have supported a population of just over 400 parishioners. In Domesday times Marlesford was an equally small place, despite this it was shared by 4 landholders including King William, himself, other portions being held by Count Alan of Brittany, Robert Malet and Bury St Edmunds Abbey. Collectively the parish could offer 7 ploughs, small meadows and within the lands of the abbey's holdings, a mill.

The Church

St Andrew's church sits on the western edge of the village on the western side of Church Road. First impressions are of a church built a mixture of Decorated & Perpendicular styles which was probably built in a single campaign crossing that fashion style boundary. Pevsner, however, points to the southern arcade and identifies, from the sturdy circular pier, a date of c1200. This evidence indicates that the church was originally 12th century but was significantly, almost totally, rebuilt during the great church building era. The chancel windows, in particular, highlight the transition showing both Decorated and Perpendicular styles. The western tower is, however, totally from that later period. For once there is no mention of the usual Victorian restoration so one assumes it was either light and sensitive or missing. Church Road is narrow and with only a single space for a car at the gates, these curving rails lead to a gravel pathway heading towards the church, tees are a little close from the normal southern aspect but otherwise there are few obstructions for the photographer.
