St Mary's church - C13 font
And large Commandment Board above, on north wall. St Mary's church > LinkExternal link - LinkExternal link - LinkExternal link was extensively restored during Victorian times: roof and benches date from this time, with C16 poppyheads affixed to the late Victorian benches. There is a huge Commandment Board above the blocked north doorway, the text executed in 'black letter' script, the paintings depicting the four Evangelists and their symbols, and Aaron and Moses (seen here). The C18 carved communion rails > LinkExternal link were presumably made by a local carpenter. Older survivals are the C13 font (seen here) and angle piscina in the south aisle; the largely original C15 rood screen consists of six panels, one of which depicts the Holy Trinity, the other the Virgin Mary > LinkExternal link - LinkExternal link - LinkExternal link. Fragments of medieval glass are set into the chancel windows and there are several C17 monuments on the chancel wall > LinkExternal link. On the sanctuary floor there is a damaged brass to Sir Ralph Shelton (d. 1424) and his wife Alice > LinkExternal link. The church organ > LinkExternal link was made in 1867 by William Denman of York, who made two organs for Norfolk churches: the other one was destroyed during WW2. The church is open every day.
