The church organ was made in 1867 by William Denman of York, who made two organs for Norfolk churches: the other one stood in St Benedict and was destroyed during WW2.

St Mary's church > LinkExternal link - LinkExternal link - LinkExternal 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 > LinkExternal link. The C18 carved communion rails > LinkExternal 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 > LinkExternal link - LinkExternal link - LinkExternal link. Fragments of medieval glass are set into the chancel windows and there are several C17 monuments on the chancel wall > LinkExternal link. On the sanctuary floor there is a damaged brass to Sir Ralph Shelton (d. 1424) and his wife Alice > LinkExternal link . The church is open every day. For more information see: LinkExternal link

Update (4 June 2014)- Mr William Janssen kindly supplied the following information: "I am the organist of Thetford United Reformed Church. This church houses a 13 stop very original organ by William Denman, built originally for St. Cuthbert's Church in Thetford where it was replaced in 1911 by an instrument by another Yorkshire organ builder James Jepson Binns of Leeds."
