    All Saints, Hawstead, Suffolk

    Detail from Three Archangels by Henry Holiday for Powell & Sons.

    Local historian Clive Paine has described this church as the Westminster Abbey of Suffolk. By which, I don't suppose he means that it hosts royal weddings, and fleeces Japanese tourists. He's referring to the monuments, of course. All Saints has more of them than just about any other church in Suffolk. Most of them are for the Drury and Cullum families.

    There's also an interesting collection of restored glass, an excellent set of windows by Henry Holiday for Powell & Son, as well as the work of other workshops.

    The church is open every day throughout the year.
