Church Restoration Project

St Gregory’s Church, Rendlesham, is thought to have been built in the 14th century on the site of an Anglo Saxon pagan temple. The Venerable Bede writes at length of Rendlesham as the site of King Redwald’s Royal palace and estate.

The Rendlesham Survey Project is managed by Suffolk County Council Archaeological Service with the co-operation of the landowners, Sir Michael and Lady Caroline Bunbury, and Colchester and Ipswich Museums. It is funded and supported by the Sutton Hoo Society, English Heritage, the Portable Antiquities Scheme, the Suffolk Institute of  Archaeology & History, the Society of Antiquaries of London, and the Royal Archaeological Institute.
