History of St Andrew’s, Wingfield. Suffolk

The Colleigate Church of St Andrew was founded on the site of an earlier church in 1362 by Sir John de Wingfield.  Built in the decorated style although right at the cusp of the new perpendicular style, so that during the building the style changes as you get nearer to the clerestory and roof.   The misericords date from this first building phase - it is worth noting the similarity between these misericords and those at Sutton Courtney, Berkshire and at Soham, Cambridgeshire.

As Sir John had died in 1361, his executors saw to it that the chancel was built first, so that there was a place for his tomb.  Michael de la Pole, Sir John’s son-in-law saw to the building of the nave and aisles in the early 15th century.  

The reformation was not kind to St Andrew’s it was denuded of it’s wealth, and probably had no dedicated priest for 300 or so years by the end of which time it was in a parlous state.  It was only in the 19th century that some essential repairs were carried out.  A major fourteen year restoration was started in 1866.  Other restoration projects have been carried out over the subsequent years.
