Wenhaston Suffolk Medieval Doom Painting in St Peters ChurchThe Wenhaston Doom is a medieval wall painting that is unusual for having been painted on to wooden boards. Few other such Dooms have survived and indeed the story of the Wenhaston Doom is remarkable.

On our website you can explore the Doom in detail and read a commentary about it and the various images featured.

Postcards of the Doom are freely available from this website (go to Postcards in the Menu), and also at St.Peter's church where they may be purchased.

If you plan to come and see the Doom for yourself there is bed and breakfast and self catering accommodation in Wenhaston and area – see below.

Spring Dawn Chorus St Peter's Churchyard

View across from Bickers Heath May is a wonderful time in Suffolk and the morning serenade from the birds especially so! You can download a six minute MP3 of the Dawn Chorus recorded in the middle of Wenhaston at 4:30am on 6th May 2008. Dawn Chorus (1mb).

Members of the Wenhaston WI, their friends and families, have examined and recorded all the memorials in St. Peter's Churchyard in Wenhaston. Many of these were very worn or hidden in bushes, and so very hard to read. This project is now complete and Blythweb are pleased to show the results online as a searchable database (useful for those carrying out family research).
