Framlingham Church - looking away from the altar and back towards the organ.

Oliver Cromwell ordered these instruments to be destroyed because of their very ornate decoration but eight survived however and now only three of those remain.

There is a wall painting above a column on the right, which survives from the early medieval church, and is part of a rare representation of the Holy Trinity.

  Photograph of the Thamar Organ in St. Michael's Church, Framlingham, Suffolk, England   The Thomas Thamar organ manufactured in 1674 and is still in working order.

The decorative painting on the organ pipes can be seen a little more clearly in the larger view.
