St Peter & St Paul, Salle: font and cover
St Peter & St Paul, Salle: font and cover
This mediaeval "seven sacrament" font with its tall wooden cover and unique hoist system is among the "hundred church treasures of England" according to the Church Buildings Council.
St Peter and St Paul, Salle, Norfolk
The church is grade 1 listed (list entry number 1306145) and regarded as "a magnificent example of a 15th century East Anglian wool church". Like many of its kind, it is far bigger than the population of the village it served, built to reflect the wealth of local landowners than meet a real need; nowadays the parish population is only around 50.
