Hemley is so quiet that the road leading to the church and village has grass growing in the centre of the tarmac and long may it continue, I walked up the hill from Newbourne village .

All Saints Church has a Tudor Tower similar to nearby Waldringfield, within, there is a rerodos [an ornamental screen behind an altar] which was salvaged from a shell torn Belgian church during the Great War

There is a walk to nearby Kirton Creek along part of the Mill River, the source being near to Foxhall Speedway Stadium, this disgorges itself into The River Deben, there are a host of saltmarsh plants along here during the spring and summer an the walk returns to the church

Not a good photo but will do until I next get out here, this is the footpath/track from Newbourne to Hemley with glimpses of The River Deben

The Church of All Saints has been remodelled in Victorian Fashion, but the Tower is Elizabethan with a blue brick pattern, there are a few such towers in this immediate area
