Ald­ham Church un­der a late spring sky...

Beau­ti­ful Ald­ham Vale, near Hadleigh, is a peace­ful set­ting for the dis­tinc­tive, round-tow­ered St Mary’s Ald­ham church. But don’t be fooled – things weren’t al­ways this tran­quil. On nearby Ald­ham Com­mon, Protes­tant preacher Dr Roland Tay­lor, rec­tor of Hadleigh, was burned at the stake in 1555. In hap­pier, more re­cent times, St Mary’s – one of 38 round tower churches in Suf­folk – was a lo­ca­tion for film­ing the sec­ond sea­son of the BBC se­ries The De­tec­torists.
