The second largest parish church in the Diocese, the present building dates from the 14th century. It is gloriously spacious, light and airy. An oddity is the ruined tower which first partially collapsed in 1724 following a double peal. Originally it was 147 ft and taller even than Cromer. The remains were reduced by 50ft in 1836. The south porch is a fine example of the late 14th c with elaborate decoration. The font contains a tall Perpendicular canopy, ending in a pelican. The medieval rood screen contains images of the Apostles, the Virgin Mary and six Saints. There is a large alabaster monument in the Chancel to Sir William Paston, founder of the Paston School which Nelson attended for a while. There are many other items of interest including a Communion table of c 1550 and a Royal Arms board used at least three times for Cromwell's Commonwealth, King Charles I and Charles II.
