St Margaret's church - baptismal font
St Margaret's church - baptismal font
In the corner behind two 13th century coffin slabs can be seen laid out on the tiled floor. It is believed that they once covered the coffins of two priests. St Margaret's church > TG1939 : St Margaret's church - view west is located east of Felbrigg Hall. It was built during the 1450s by Simon de Felbrigg, who is commemorated, together with his first wife Margaret, by the most noteworthy of a number of fine brasses in the church > TG1939 : St Margaret's church - memorial brass. The life-size brass is situated at the eastern end of the nave and protected by a carpet. Sir Simon is one of only six Knights of the Garter, and his wife Margaret was cousin to Anne of Bohemia (wife of Richard II). The church also contains a large number of wall monuments to members of the Wyndham family > TG1939 : St Margaret's church - memorial. The octagonal baptismal font (seen here) dates from the 14th century, as does the sedilia, damaged beyond repair when the early 19th century monument to William Windham was built directly into them > TG1939 : St Margaret's church - memorial. William Windham was one of England's best-known and most eloquent statesmen at the turn of the 18th century; his monument was made by Joseph Nollekens. The church is open every day.
