St Edmund's church has a Norman round tower with a bell stage dating from the same time. The church has been restored > LinkExternal link - LinkExternal link but some medieval survivals remain, the probably most noteworthy being the 15th century font, the inscription of which gives the precise date of 1410 > LinkExternal link - LinkExternal link. The rood screen dado panels are painted red and green and bear the stencilled monogram of St Edmund > LinkExternal link - LinkExternal link. Another treasure of this church is a large graffito across the north chancel wall which dates from a time when many villagers were killed by the then raging pestilence. Having been restored, the script is now protected behind glass > LinkExternal link. Beneath it a brass to Thomas Stone, who was vicar here during the reign of James I, has been mounted on the wall > LinkExternal link. This is the only 17th century brass to a minister in Norfolk. The church is open every day. For more information see: LinkExternal link
