Published: 1996

In 1851, in addition to the normal ten-yearly census of population, there was held a census of places of worship.  The returns for Suffolk from this Census of Religious Worship, edited by T. C. B. Timmins, present a most enlightening picture of church and chapel life in the mid-Victorian period. Entries include information such as the number of people in attendance, including even the number of scholars present at a church service in Beccles, and they even go so far as to comment on the weather conditions on occasion.
