St Ives Free Church - Saint Ives

St Ives Free Church

St Ives Free Church

The Congregations of the United Reformed Church built this structure in 1865; it was refurbished in 1979. In addition to regular worship services, the church hosts meetings and community gatherings. It also has Just Sharing, a shop specializing in goods from around the world, made according to the principles of Fair Trade (respecting workers' rights and dignity). Finally, it has a Tookey's Coffee Shop. So it's a bit more than just another church.

Address: 6 California Road St Ives PE27 6SJ

The Chapel on the Bridge in St Ives - Saint Ives

The Chapel on the Bridge in St Ives

St Ives' Chapel on the Bridge

Throughout Europe, cities and even smaller towns have competed by trying to build the largest, most magnificent cathedrals. Some are quite an impressive sight. But the tiny town of Ipswich went in the opposite direction. It has the smallest church in Britain. The Chapel on the Bridge is truly unique. The sign on the door tells where to go to get a key. It only takes a few minutes. The inside is rather plain, but still interesting.

Directions: On the bridge over the River Great Ouse.
