St Mary's church - C15 rood screen
St Mary's church > Link - Link - 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 > Link. The C18 carved communion rails > Link were presumably made by a local carpenter. Older survivals are the C13 font 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 > Link - Link. Fragments of medieval glass are set into the chancel windows and there are several C17 monuments on the chancel wall > Link. On the sanctuary floor there is a damaged brass to Sir Ralph Shelton (d. 1424) and his wife Alice > Link. The church organ > 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.
