Stradsett Saint Mary's Church, What a beauty! Despite showing up unannounced I was given an absolutely brilliant welcoming. On the Estate of Sir Jeremy Bagge, I was welcomed by Mr Alfred Bagge, Sir Jeremy's son and wife, I was given permission to photograph the outside of the Saint Mary's Church, with the prospect of going back on a later date to photograph the inside. I was happy to meet another lovely key holder on site that allowed me to stay for more photos. Though the light was fading and it was only 2pm, I was amazed at the church in all it's beauty. I walked in and saw the coloured glass windows, I gasped in awe! Saint Mary's, is one of the most beautiful little churches I've yet been in, with its plastered facade outside, to its almost recently altered windows, 1819, I was glad to have been allowed in and will definitely return. The stained windows depicting "Suffer the little children" in an image, as beautiful as any I have seen, a brass plaque knight still in situ and Victorian Royal Arms adorning the wall. There are also mementos to the WW2 if one looks, on this occasion a "Scramble Bell" for R.A.F pilot's to race back to their aircraft. Stradsett Saint Mary's Church, west tower, south porch, nave, and chancel. Plain 14th century tower with no butresses. Much restored church with modern roofs and fittings and a small set of Victorian Arms. 3 bells, the base of the tower and the walls of this church are mainly Early English, but most of the windows are later insertions from 16th century onwards. there are several memorials to the Bagge family including Thomas Philip Bagge and Grace Bagge 1834 sculptured by (Sir) Richard Westmacott, R.A. There is also a brass to Thomas Lathe. The east window is filled with beautiful stained glass, which was made in Munich in 1543. This was presented to the church by Thomas P. Bagge, Esq., who died in 1827.
