The parish church of All Saints stands close to the river Waveney, its shingle spire - added to the 14th-century tower some time about 1700 - attesting the presence of the village, and of God, in this part of the valley.

It has probably stood here since Norman times when, in 1086, the Doomsday Book recorded the water mill nearby. Before that, there may well have been a small timber building, and the knoll on which the church stands suggests that it could have been originally the site of a "preaching cross" where Christian people from a wider area would gather.

During the medieval period, in successive alterations the nave was lengthened, the tower and chancel were added, and finally the windows were greatly enlarged. Internally, the church (listed Grade I) is notable for the rare 16th century "twelve apostles" font (sadly defaced in Cromwell's purge) and a west gallery constructed for the musicians in about 1800 as well as a number of fine roundels of old Flemish glass engraved with biblical scenes - from demolition of an abbey in Belgium at that time.
