St Andrew’s Church, Walberswick (2)

The fabric of the exterior of St Andrew’s, Walberswick, is interesting.  Much use was made of the locally available flint stone both for the construction and decoration of the 15th century tower and church.  Knapped flint can produce a shiny surface and a range of colours.

Panels of mixed stone and brick are attractive for both their colour and their texture.

Sketches of churches in Ibiza
