VISITORS INFORMATION

POST CODE

CO6 5BS

Polstead is an exceptionally picturesque village in a mainly rural area. St Mary's has glorious views and the interior is worth a visit, especially the rear Norman brick arches and much reused Roman material. The Church is located up a steep slope by an unmade lane leading from the road at the bottom end of The Pool.  Parking is very limited amongst the trees at the top of the lane therefore most visitors are recommended to park on the lower road by The Pool.
