St Botolph's Church, Iken - Information

St Botolph’s Church, Iken is an ancient and sacred place on a promontory overlooking the River Alde. It is one of East Anglia’s earliest Christian sites – the Anglo Saxon Chronicle records for the year 654 that… “In this year Anna (the Christian King of the East Angles) was slain and Botwulf (Botolph) began to build the Minster at Icanhoh”.

A site spanning 1,300 years of Christian worship, few visitors discovering Iken Church today will fail to marvel at how the people of this tiny community have, over the past few decades, sensitively restored their church (which was partially gutted by fire in 1968) and have enabled it to live and function again as a homely place of worship.

More information about the history of Iken Church can be found in a booklet at the Church itself, or on various websites including:
