Troston, Saint Mary the Virgin

Welcome to our fine mediaeval church, unusual among Suffolk churches, because it dates mainly from the 13th and early 14th centuries. 

The north wall is covered with magnificent wall paintings and the remains of a Doom painting can be found above the nave; all of these, thanks to a lottery grant and village fundraising, were conserved as part of our ambitious restoration programme. These paintings remind us that the walls were probably extensively covered with paintings before the Reformation.  Visitors are also attracted by our mediaeval graffiti.  


We have a visitors’ book and a prayer box.

We have a well maintained churchyard, with a wild flower and meadow grass area. Over fifty species of plants have been revealed following a survey by Suffolk Wildlife Trust. 
We are grateful to the Parish Council for the financial contribution given annually towards the grass cutting and upkeep of the lime trees that require regular maintenance.

We are proud to say that our church is open every day during daylight hours and morning prayer is said there on the last Friday of the month.
