Brockdish Saint Peter and Saint Paul Church, Square west tower with octagonal staircase turret running up the south-east angle to a height above the top of the tower, 6 bells, nave with south aisle, chancel and south porch. The tower was rebuilt in 1862. The style throughout is Traditional Decorated, and Perpendicular. All the windows have modern stained glass. The old rood screen was restored in 1900 by two daughters of the late Rt Hon. Sir Edward Kay, Kt., P.C. Lord Justice of Appeal, who died in 1897. There is an ancient tomb to Sir Richard Tendring, who died at the end of the 15th century. Cautley wrote: Brockdish Saint Peter and Saint Paul Church, west tower, south porch, nave, south aisle and chancel. This church has suffered such a drastic restoration, including a new tower in place of the Old Norman one, that it is difficult to say much about it. The arcade is original and if so the canopied cap to the eastern pillar is interesting. The base of the old screen remains with modern top, and in the aisle is a 13th century piscina and the 14th century table monument of Sir Ralph Tendring now standing under the east window. A little slit window in nave has a buttress placed in front of it, but with a borrowed light for it in the north side of the buttress. The window is probably pre-Conquest.Brockdish What is left of Saint Peter and Saint Paul Church, is 14th and 15th century. Winged gargoyles keep company with modern figures of saints Peter and Paul on the 15th century porch. Coloured figures playing instruments support the old roof of the chancel, and bosses enrich the roof of the nave being modern. A Jacobean chair is carved and inlaid, and the handsome poppyheads of chancel seats were carved with holly berries and oak leaves at Harleston a few miles away.
