Wissett church


The small village church of Wissett, between Southwold and Halesworth in Suffolk, is probably not a place you’d expect to find a historical relic of national significance.

But cast your eyes towards the eleventh-century flint parish church that serves the village and you’ll notice the circular tower attached to the west end. Inside it has a floor that has been dated back to the 12th century, making it the oldest recorded church tower floor in the UK.
