Groton, St Bartholomew's Church
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
HERITAGE HIGHLIGHTS: Winthrop family association
Heraldic shields with the Winthrop and Massachusetts coats of arms are displayed on another window inside the church. Indeed, much of the church has been restored with funds donated by American Winthrops and their friends. For that reason the interior lacks some of the historic interest found in many medieval churches in this area of Suffolk, though it is, it must be said, in a generally good state of repair thanks to the American donations!
In the churchyard stands the oldest outdoor memorial in Suffolk; the Kedbye tomb, dated 1598.
St Bartholomew's is normally open daylight hours.
