The church of SS Peter & Paul - stained glass roundel
Roundel commemorating Canon Walter Marcon, the cycling parson - in south aisle window, marking the centenary of the dedication of the church (in 1984) on its present site and commemorating the Dagless family and their association with the parish over several centuries > Link.

The church of SS Peter & Paul > Link - Link - Link where it stands now, was rebuilt in the late 1880s from the materials of the dismantled old church > Link of which only the south porch and the octagonal tower remain at the site. It took ten years to raise the funds needed and another two to complete the new building. Curiously, its tower stands at the northeastern corner of the building. The architect was JD Sedding and the then Rector of Edgefield was Canon Walter Marcon, who in Norfolk is remembered as the cycling parson - he is commemorated in a roundel in one of the modern church windows (seen here). The west window was originally the east window in the old church; the rood screen is a combination of original and new and the parclose screen > Link to the south aisle is dated from 1526. The font is C13 Purbeck marble > Link. The church is open every day. For more information see: LinkExternal link
