St Gregory Pottergate, Norwich
St Gregory Pottergate, Norwich
St Gregory's church as we see it today dates from the 14th century but the tower is older and thought to be Saxon. The large south porch has a ribbed vault with roof bosses > Link. Inside the building there still is the original wooden roof with carved bosses and angel corbels and a baptismal font > Link dating from the 14th century with grotesque heads at the base of the stem. The wooden font cover > Link dates from the 17th century. The aisle windows are known to have been constructed by Robert Wodehirst who also worked on the Anglican cathedral. The C15 wall painting at the west end of the north aisle, depicting St George > Link slaying the dragon, was discovered by pure coincidence in 1861 and is considered to be one of the very best in England. Fragments of another mural > Link - it depicts the Four Doctors of the Church - can be seen in the south aisle. A row of misericord stalls > Link remains in the chancel and at the west end of the south aisle there is a 17th century fretwork royal arms > Link which is hanging the wrong side round. The church houses a number of fine wall monuments > Link dating from the 17th to the early 19th century. The church is redundant and home to Textile Arts Studios > Link.
