Freethorpe: All Saints

All Saints Church is the smallest and probably the oldest church in the area. The round tower is probably Norman and 12th century and the Chancel was completed in 1299 AD.  A famous Victorian architect, Anthony Salvin, designed the interior of the church in 1849 and was paid for by the Lord of the Manor. 

The Vade-Walpole family, who were related to the first Prime Minister of Britain, were benefactors of the church.   The Walpole pew is quite unique in a church as it has a Victorian cast iron fireplace and resembles a cosy sitting room. The window in this side pew shows the Vade-Walpole Coat of Arms
