Walpole

 

Pictures of buildings mentioned in the “Suffolk” volume of “The Buildings of England” series by Sir Nikolaus Pevsner.


In the second edition on page 473, Pevsner starts, after St Mary’s, with the Congregational Church and of it he says: “Built 1607, adapted as a chapel as early as 1647.  Enlarged some time before 1698.  Original mullioned windows survive.” Two views of it are here:





Pevsner continues: “At the back, two tall arched Georgian windows.  Three wooden columns run along the middle supporting the roof.  The interior has the pulpit (with tester) in the middle of one long side, and pews and galleries on three sides.”  It has its own web site with interior views and more on its history.
