Westhorpe St Margaret's Church
Westhorpe St Margaret's Church
This church has much to interest the visitor. The top of the tower has a chequer-work pattern parapet but no crenellations. In the south porch is a stoup and on the door a ring-handle 600 years old. The nave roof is a braced tiebeam construction with intermediate hammerbeams. The chancel has a simple scissor-frame roof. Beneath the tower, the door to the bell chamber is heavily iron-clad as is the parish chest. The octagonal font is plain and stands on a double brick plinth. Interestingly, I believe the Royal Arms are originally much earlier than George II whose initials they bear. They have been over-painted from Charles I, but are dated 1605 for James I. In the chancel is a railed-off monument to Maurice Barrow (1666). Pre-dating most other things in the church is the 14th century arched recess in memory of Henry Elmham (1330)
