THE CHURCH WHICH THE CLOTHIERS HELPED TO BUILD AT LAVENHAM

The lovely Decorated porch of the parish church at Lavenham, in Suffolk, reminds one that the clothiers of this district, who began to grow wealthy during the sixteenth century, spent their money lavishly on noble places of worship. Lavenham church was specially indebted to the generosity of the Spring family. Lavenham boasts many Tudor houses of the clothiers' time.
