St Martin's Church - the Easter Sepulchre
St Martin's Church - the Easter Sepulchre
St Martin's church > Link - Link was designed and built in one piece by architect Thomas Aldrych in the mid 15th century, using limestone in combination with knapped flint for the flushwork decoration. The south aisle was restored and enlarged in the 16th century when the roof height was raised. The present chancel was restored by Norwich architect Edward Boardman in Victorian times. The east window, which contains Kempe glass, was installed at the same time. The reredos > Link is by H.B. Walters and dates from 1906. It is believed that the Easter Sepulchre once contained the remains of Alice Knyvet and the indent of a brass depicting a woman in prayer remains on the back wall of the tomb recess. The octagonal font bowl > Link - it is dated 'Feb 1 1617' and inscribed with the name of the churchwardens - rests on a medieval shaft which is decorated with four lions, alternating with wild men. Four of the doors > Link are original and several 15th century poppy-headed benches have survived in the nave. The church is open every day.
