All Saints church - C15 hammerbeam roof
All Saints church - C15 hammerbeam roof
All Saints church > LinkExternal link is situated about halfway up the hill to the south of the village, beside The Street which is the main thoroughfare. The original structure of the church was built about 1280, and there are indications that it stands on an older site of worship. The round tower is believed to date from Norman times. It has a 14th century octagonal bell stage which is capped by a Victorian spire covered with slates in the Essex style, presumably the only one of this type on a Norfolk church tower. The chancel dates from the early 13th century, the nave was built in the 14th and the clerestory added during the 15th century. The original south aisle was destroyed and later rebuilt in Victorian times > LinkExternal link. Inside the church is a beautiful hammerbeam roof but not much else has survived from medieval times besides the C15 octagonal font > LinkExternal link. The stained glass in the east window > LinkExternal link was installed in the early 19th century. In 1989 the inner walls were redecorated by unguarded volunteer prisoners from nearby Wayland Prison.
