    The church of St Mary is an ancient one filled with history. It sits on a hill a little above the main village, with a square stone tower and a sprawling churchyard. Mainly 14th Century, the lower part of the church tower pre-dates the Magna Carta. There is some 14th Century stained glass still to be seen, and a rare and beautifully carved stone rood screen of the same era.

    The Great Bardfield Cage

    The Great Bardfield Cage is the old village lock-up. In the 19th Century, local criminals were held in this tiny brick cell. Nowadays, a figure of a man crouches in the cell and the push of a button plays a short audio tape-recording telling you a little of the Cages history. Local historians maintain this, so the Cage is only open during the summer months at weekends and Bank Holidays. There is no fee to view the Cage.

    A marvellous little piece of local history!
