Listed Buildings in Ipswich: No 33 St Lawrence Church

St Lawrence ChurchSt Lawrence, a grade 2* listed church, sits on Dial Lane right in the heart of Ipswich town centre. Closed and declared redundant as a place of worship in the 1970’s it was restored by the borough council at a cost of £1.2M and reopened as a community centre in 2008. In September of the following year the church bells were returned to the tower after an absence of a quarter of a century. The bells, all cast in the 1440’s, are the oldest circle of five bells in the world!
