The Church

Billingford sits surrounded by fields, on a hilltop, looking over the Waveney valley and across to Suffolk.

This is a small church with a low tower, only slightly higher than the nave. Inside, the church is full of interest. There are a range of carved pew ends of grotesque faces and a delicately carved and painted screen. The font is medieval.

On the south wall is a painting, the subject is hard to make out but includes three figures standing in a doorway.

The church is in need of repairs to the chancel roof and are currently fundraising.

The Bats

The church is home to a number of Natterer's bats, mostly roosting in the tower but also around the chancel and tower arches.

The Bats in Churches project will be supporting the church with advice on including bat mitigation in it's chancel roof repairs, which will hopefully reduce the impact inside the church.

We will be providing interpretation about the church and the bats, and aiming to work with nearby schools to encourage pupils to learn more about the church.
