Letheringham

Letheringham is a sparsely populated civil parish in the East Suffolk district (formerly Deben Rural District and then Suffolk Coastal) in Suffolk, England, on the Deben River.[1]

St Mary is a tiny church, the remains of the tower and nave of a Priory church, and sits in a farmyard. It is open 24 hours a day.

For over 1000 years Letheringham has been a parish of ancient Loes Hundred, a unit of government never technically abolished whose functions were transferred in the late 19th century to various modern divisions of government.

From the 2011 Census population details were no longer maintained for this parish and were included in the civil parish of Hoo.
