Alternatively, if you don't have flash enabled, you can go straight to the set for this church on flickr.

Open. An idyllic setting, and so pretty and remote after the last tourist spot. I am greeted by Jerry, the church cat, and what I took to be his brother. They are obviously well used to greeting hikers through the Dedham Vale who stop here for lunch! A sign on the door asks you to make sure that Jerry is not left inside when you leave the church, as 'he can't reach the handle'.

I expect this church is always open, and it really is lovely inside and out. Nothing terribly exciting, just a sense of its own 19th and early 20th Century past, and the crispness of a restoration in 2000. I liked it a great deal.
