Wantisden is by far the smallest in population of the three parishes and mostly consists of one farm with a mixture of arable and livestock . There is also an ancient woodland known as Staverton Forest, a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). There is no public right of access but there are designated footpaths which make interesting walks. It is said that there is a round table in Orford Castle which was made from a cross-section of a tree from this woodland.
An off-shoot of the farming business is Wantisden Valley which offers superb facilities for weddings, balls and parties and the very popular indoor winter craft fair,
The church is 11/12th century and has one of the finest Norman arches in the country as well as a Saxon font so it of great interest to church architects.
The Team Vicar is now the Reverend Mandy Reynolds, The Vicarage, Walnut Tree Avenue, Rendlesham, Woodbridge, IP12 2GG. Telephone 01394 420129, Email email@example.com
The church aims to hold six services each year, generally starting at 3pm.
There is no heating or lighting in the church, so do wear warm clothes.
The services for 2022 will be announced shortly, the first being sometime over the Easter weekend.
