The church of St Nicholas
The church of St Nicholas
St Nicholas' church > LinkExternal link - LinkExternal link has an octagonal tower > LinkExternal link which once housed the oldest bell in Norfolk, dating from c. 1290. This bell was stolen in 1973, after the church had been made redundant and suffered greatly from vandalism, until being taken in the care of the Churches Conservation Trust, several years later. The tower has a Norman doorway > LinkExternal link - believed to have been reset during the restoration in the 19th century; there is also a door leading up the tower > LinkExternal link on the outside wall. Vandals also damaged the pews and smashed the glass in the east window > LinkExternal link which was by S.C. Yarrington of Norwich. The remaining fragments were reassembled and are now reset in the upper half of the window. Apart from a number of C17 ledger stones > LinkExternal link - LinkExternal link on the chancel floor, the medieval font > LinkExternal link with its particularly fine carving is the sole survivor of the carnage. The church is kept locked (as are most other churches in this area) but a key is available on request. For more information see: LinkExternal link
