St George Colegate, Norwich
St George Colegate is the only medieval church still in religious use within the old Flemish quarter known as Norwich over the Water. As we see it today, the church was built in the 15th (nave) and 16th centuries. The north chapel was built by William Norwich - he was mayor in 1461. The church houses one of the largest collections of monuments, many of them the work of the 'Norwich School' > LinkExternal link - LinkExternal link - LinkExternal link. The 16th century terracotta tomb chest > LinkExternal link in the north chapel is of Robert Jannys, mayor 1517 and 1524. It is believed to have been made by the same craftsman who worked at Oxborough > LinkExternal link and Wymondham. The pulpit > LinkExternal link dates from the 18th century and is contemporary with the reredos > LinkExternal link. The baptismal font > LinkExternal link came from St Saviour and replaced an older font that was Norman and of Purbeck marble. The only coloured glass is contained in the east window > LinkExternal link. It is believed to be a copy of Reynold's glass at New College in Oxford. It is badly deteriorated.
