St Clement's church in Fye Street, Norwich
This church no longer serves as a parish church. St Clement-at-Fyebridge church as we see it today was built mainly during the 15th century. It is situated near Fye Bridge that takes Magdalen Road over the River Wensum. The church was restored by HJ Green in 1889 and all the furnishings date from this time. The face of a Green Man > LinkExternal link is carved into one of the panels of the contemporary pulpit. A C16 figure brass > LinkExternal link has survived on the floor of the nave and an old ledger stone > LinkExternal link can be seen nearby. A number of memorials commemorating members of the Harvey > LinkExternal link and Ives families can be seen on the walls. The church houses an intricately carved medieval baptismal font > LinkExternal link. After becoming redundant in the 1960s the building was used for counselling and pastoral work which allowed for the retaining of all furnishings. It is not as yet known what will happen when a Romanian Orthodox group will move in at some time in the near future.
