Lovely village that has a beautiful church with many ornate monuments, a castle complete with a moat and drawbridge and a college (pictured)


...and the moated castle

The Church of St Andrew probably the most complete church in Suffolk, it looks good, it feels good both inside and outside, another favourite of mine

Wingfield has the Church of St Andrew and The Castle as a Grade I Listed Building I am somewhat surprised that the College is listed as Grade II*, see the full list here
