The church of All Saints - C18 wall monument
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.
