Other Information

  • No trace of the earliest church, built by the saxons to commemorate the now obscure Saint Wendreda exists today with the present building dating in the earliest parts from Norman times.
  • Outside of London, St Wendreda's Church is thought by many to have the best double hammerbeam roof in Britain with 9 bays and an enormous 120 angels fitted to the beams.
  • The church tower is unusual for having a covered path run under it, probably because there was an ancient right of way running through the site before the church was built, perhaps one of the earliest examples of the planning system in action!
