St Andrew’s Church

St Andrews was a huge church completed at some time in the 15th Century for the community of Covehithe. Although civil war iconoclasts did have a go at it in the 17th century, it survived but fell into disrepair because the local community of only 300 people just couldn’t keep up with maintaining it. Eventually, it was partially dismantled and a smaller church built within its walls, which is still in use today. The enormous tower is a conspicuous landmark, was and still is an aid to navigation because it can be seen well out to sea.
