We are on the outskirts of the Suffolk town of Bungay, but on the Norfolk side of the river. The urban area of Bungay sprawls into two Norfolk parishes, Earsham and Ditchingham, and the hamlet of Pirnhow is in Ditchingham parish.
This donative church was built in
1863 at a cost of £1400, about a quarter of a million in
today's money. A perky little bell turret rises above the
porch, and the west end windows consist of two enormously
tall, narrow lancets and an oval medallion, all most
unusual. The chapel is now a private house, although it
appears to have been empty for a number of years.
