The church of All Saints - tower and north porch
Thurlton was in the King's Hundred of Clavering, once held by Archbishop Stigand (deposed 1070) but, at the time of the Domesday survey, by William de Noyers. A church is mentioned in the Survey in Oder's land at Thurlton. Both Roger Bigod and Ralph of Beaufour had holdings in Thurlton at Domesday. The tower of All Saints church > LinkExternal link was built in the 15th century and the north dorway with censing angels in the spandrels > LinkExternal link dates from the same time but the ornate Norman doorway > LinkExternal link on the south wall is earlier. The church was extensively restored in the mid-18th century but a mid-to-late 15th century wall painting depicting St Christopher > LinkExternal link has survived, albeit in much faded condition. An hourglass stand > LinkExternal link is still in its original place on the wall beside the C19 pulpit, and the octagonal font > LinkExternal link is original also. The medieval rood screen > LinkExternal link has had its panels removed. The "Thurlton Dragon" is depicted in one of the spandrels > LinkExternal link. All Saints church is open every day.
