Walsham le Willows, St. Mary's Church
As you approach the church from the north, the 24-light clerestory is probably the thing which stands out most or perhaps the chequer-work on the 16th century porch. The date 1541 is written on the inside wall. Inside the nave, the early 15th century roof has braced tie-beams with arched braces and intermittent hammerbeams. Each beam and hammer has two rows of detailed decoration. The octagonal font is 14th century with cusping round the bowl and shallow arcading on the shaft. Unexpectedly, the cusped piscina and sedilia are quite plain. Dating back to the 13th century are the iron-clad parish chest and a sepulchral slab. An old 17th century bier is used as a table for displaying leaflets. The rood screen has been re-painted in traditional colours. The 1883 reredos is a depiction of the Last Supper, by Tinworth , and is absolutely magnificent.
