Holy Trinity church - view east
Holy Trinity church is located just east of a Roman settlement that was established in the 2nd century > Link and a Saxon cemetery from the 8th century. The church is greatly restored, the south porch was rebuilt in 1908. The very large font, which came from near Eye in Suffolk, dates from the 15th century > Link. The board depicting the royal arms dates from the days of Charles II but was overpainted to show the arms of George III > Link. The oldest window in the church is a lancet dating from the 13th century; the 1930s stained glass - a memorial to John Chase, a churchwarden - was designed by King's of Norwich and shows the City of God >Link. The east window > Link is a memorial to the nine men who were drowned when the lifeboat capsized in a storm on 14. November 1901. The window depicts the call of Peter, James, John and Andrew to be 'fishers of men', and St Edmund, the King of East Anglia (left) paired with St Nicholas, patron saint of sailors and fishermen (right). A number of memorials is on the chancel and sanctuary walls, the probably finest being that of William Crowe, Esq. - a London merchant who bought Caister Castle from the Paston Family > Link. The church is open every day. For more information see: LinkExternal link
