St. George, Bradfield St. George - chancel

St. George, Bradfield St. George - chancel
One of the three Bradfield villages in the heavily wooded countryside south-east of Bury St. Edmunds - the others being Bradfield St. Clare and Bradfield Combust. The church stands atop a small hill and, it is said, from the top of the 15th century tower another 16 church towers can be seen.

Some of the church dates from earlier, Norman times, but most of the nave, chancel and north aisle are 14th and 15th century Perpendicular. The interior was extensively but tastefully restored in the mid-19th century, although a fine set of nine 16th century poppy-head pews remain.

A 20th century carved image of St George stands in a medieval niche flanking the chancel arch, and the glorious reredos is the best of its kind in the county. St George must have been a very high Anglo-catholic church in its day, and the reredos, with its depictions of the Adoration of the Shepherds and the Magi, and the figures of St George and St Felix flanking the piece, is a relic of those days. Above is the excellent east window, the work of Edward Prynne in 1913, one of the last shouts of the triumphant pre-WWI Church of England.
