  • Recorded in the Domesday Survey and known as Wetherdena
  • The first recording of a priest at Wetherden is that of William de Wetherden 1219
  • The Domesday Survey says that half the church was owned by Hugh de Montford [an ancestor of Simon de Montford] the other half owned by the Abbey of St Edmund
  • The Church of St Mary is surrounded by lime trees planted in 1750
  • The Nave & Tower is 15c with the Chancel 14c
  • The Nave Roof is of Double-Hammerbeam construction and dates from 1480
  • Lovely wooden carvings throughout the church
  • A stick of bombs fell in WWII near the church and destroyed most of the glass in the windows
  • South Aisle built in 1487
  • Sir John Sulyard was a benefactor of the church, he was at one time The Lord Chief Justice of England
