Rendlesham St Gregory


The Parish

The parish of Rendlesham is located in southeastern Suffolk close to its North Sea coast. The parish is located in the valley of the River Deben about 4 miles northeast of the market town and port of Woodbridge. Rendlesham is sited close by and along the busy A1152 road which links Woodbridge with the Bentwaters Air Base. The former World War II airfield dominates the eastern part of Rendlesham parish and is the main employer in the parish. The village has been much added to by airforce housing, the original centre having been superseded by that on the A1152. Rendlesham parish, formerly one dominated by pastures and warrenries is now a mixture of arable farming and forestry growing on the light sandy soils. Rendlesham Forest is nowadays a large recreational area as well as a resource for timber. Sited just to the east of the River Deben Rendlesham prefers to keep its feet dry being about 15 metres above sea level and 10 above the river level, the edges of the valley have extensive grazing marshes which add to the area's varied land use. The parish area is approximately 2,000 acres and this supported a population of around 320 parishioners. In Domesday times the land was held by Gilbert de Coleville and supported a mere 3 ploughs.

The Church

St Gregory's church is sited adjacent to Ash Lane a minor road which heads from the A1152 northwards towards Campsea Ashe. The church has a rather splendidly tall western tower which has been dated to the Decorated period, a rather early date for a Suffolk church. The nave and chancel, however, are clearly Perpendicular and were clearly built during the great church building period of eastern Britain. The church sits in a fairly open setting despite the many trees to the east and north. The graveyard has a two rail fence segregating it from the road and access is through a pair of wooden gates at the southern end.
