Welcome to St Mary the Virgin

St Mary the Virgin, Cavendish
St Mary the Virgin, Cavendish

Cavendish is widely considered to be the prettiest village in South West Suffolk. A church has existed in Cavendish since Saxon times, and the current building dates from the 14th Century, with additions in the 15th and 19th Centuries. Situated in a “chocolate box” setting off a thatched cottage-lined village green, the church is one of the area’s tourist attractions, not least for its splendid, gilted 16th Century Flemish reredos.

The church hosts a well-attended Holy Communion service on the morning of the first Sunday of every month.
