Holy Trinity, Blythburgh is a very large church that is of international renown. It is a Grade 1 listed building of serene presence and atmosphere, overlooking the River Blyth and the marshes. Due to its elegant profile and prominent position, it is often called ‘The Cathedral of the Marshes’;. Look out for the angels in the roof, elegant survivors of the worst ravages of Cromwell’s troops and the iconoclast’s fundamentalism. Legend tells that the satanic dog ‘Black Shuck’ prowled the church during a great storm in 1577. Can you see his claw marks on the door?
