All Saints church, Necton
All Saints church, Necton
A few pleasant surprises await the visitor. Most impressive is the hammer-beam roof with carved recumbent angels as the hammers. The 16 wall-posts which support the principals are all canopied with figures in every one with more angels around the cornice. All with the original colouring, quite spectacular. The tower screen is Victorian and beautifully carved as is the reredos behind the altar at the opposite end of the church and all the benches in between. A Jacobean pulpit with back-board and tester dated 1636 looks splendid against the chancel arch. Above is a blocked window with four figures each side. When I visited a Victorian bier was hiding the brasses, I do wish they were properly displayed, (my only criticism of a lovely church which is usually open every day).
