11. Blythburgh Church, Notes from Hidden Britain
Heading inland from Southwold to Blythburgh, we find the former home of the celebrated film composer William Alwyn who moved there in 1960 and who died in Southwold in 1985. Despite being a tiny village, Blythburgh boasts its own 'cathedral', Holy Trinity church - or 'the cathedral of the marshes' as it's known around the world, especially by visitors to the Aldeburgh Festival who come to the church for concerts.
