A very warm welcome to St Peter and St Paul in Honing. 


 

During 2017, our church has been closed whilst it has been undergoing major works to repair and make weatherproof the roof, repair a tower buttress, replace all the rainwater drainage and make access to the tower safer.  It is hoped that the church will be open again for services and to visitors at the end of 2017.  We will update with a more accurate date as soon as it is confirmed.  In the meantime, please read further details about our church on this website and on our village website https://honingvillage.wordpress.com/

The Parish Church Council has been awarded a grant from The Heritage Lottery Fund to help fund the restoration work, for which the parish is very grateful.

 

The current church was originally built in the fifteenth century.  It has a dramatically tall C15th tower which dominates the village and local landscape.  The church was reconstructed in the eighteenth century, with the work finished in 1795, when the aisle arcades were greatly reduced in width, new windows were constructed with intersecting tracery, and the chancel shortened to four feet in length.  During a great wind the pair of west doors were damaged and during the C18th work, the fine doorway was partially bricked up, retaining its richly moulded brick arch, and transformed into a window.  The tower’s vast perpendicular west window with dividing transom and tracery remains intact.

The interior of the church was refitted from 1928-1931 at a cost of about £800 with new choir stalls, chancel table, communion rails, pews and pulpit all carved from oak grown on the Honing Estate by Cornish & Gaymers (North Walsham) and overseen by Mr Edward Cubitt.  His grandson, Mr Thomas Cubitt, was part of the team who oversaw repairs to the tower in 1991, costing £51,000.  

The current 2017 restoration project is estimated to cost over £300,000.

There is an Early English font of Purbeck marble.  Brass, and monuments particularly to the Cubitt family, are well worth discovering.  One bell survives from the original peal of 5.
