The church of SS Peter and Paul in Shropham - reredos
St Peter's church > LinkExternal link is situated to the east of the village of Shropham, adjoined by the former vicarage. It has a massive tower which dates from the 16th century but the church building is much older. However, much of the soft stone used in building it has deteriorated and had to be replaced over the centuries. The fine north doorway > LinkExternal link dates from the 13th century as does the arcade inside. Apart from minor repairs, the arch-braced timber roof in the nave is original. Font > LinkExternal link and cover are Jacobean. The church was restored in Victorian times and most furnishings date from that time. There is one medieval carved bench end which depicts a dog > LinkExternal link - it marks the family pew of the Barkers, Lords of Shropham Manor, which was built for the Barker family in the 1720s. The carved reredos is modern and commemorates Augustus Hethersett Hemsworth who died in WW1. The stained glass in the east window > LinkExternal link is Victorian.
