A beautifully presented set of walking guides has recently been launched by the Diocese of St Edmundsbury and Ipswich.

The "Angels and Pinnacles Church Heritage Trails" offer a selection of wonderful walks that connect clusters of churches throughout Suffolk.

The first guide in the series features several beautiful churches in the Suffolk Coastal area and is titled "The Southwold Cluster".

This guide features some beautiful trails around Southwold, Walberswick and Westleton, and features the following beautiful Suffolk churches:-

St Edmund's in Southwold

Southwold's majestic St Edmund's Church offers visitors the chance to see some wonderful examples of East Anglian flint work. Dating back to the 15th century, St Edmund's interior houses some beautiful stained glass windows and medieval paintings depicting angels and saints.

Holy Trinity in Blythburgh

Known as "The Cathedral of the Marshes", Holy Trinity is a magnificent church which appears to rise out of the estuary. Many people associate Holy Trinity with “Black Shuck” - the East Anglian devil dog. An ancient legend claims that the feared hound of the marshes once ran through the church, killing some parishioners on his way.

St Andrew's in Walberswick

The enigmatic ruins of St Andrew's, are one of Walberwick's iconic landmarks. Built in the 15th century, it was once a very grand church.
