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.

Our Work

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

In late 2021 the church has completed long awaited repairs to the chancel roof and we have supported them with advice and by linking them up with the local bat group who have been able to help with surveys.

We have also provided interpretation about the church and the bats, and linked the church with the local Suffolk Bat Group to help them organise activities and events.
