St Bartholomew's church - the crypt
St Bartholomew's church - the crypt
St Bartholomew's church is a large building with a soaring tower and high chancel arches > Link - Link - Link. Restored during the 19th century, the church has plain modern roofs but several of the arcade pillars retain traces of their original paint, dating from the 14th century, as do the wall paintings depicting St Christopher, St Bartholomew and St Andrew. The church has a Jacobean three-decker pulpit > Link. There are a number of C16 benches > Link with poppyheads and animal carvings; the restored rood screen dates from the 15th century, as does the octagonal font > Link. There is a C16 brass > Link to a priest, John Athorne, on the chancel floor. Steps lead down to an undercroft (seen here) below the sanctuary, which might once have been served as a crypt or a treasury but in later days was used to hold overnight prisoners on their way from King's Lynn to Norwich. The church is open every day. For more information see: LinkExternal link
