About Us

St Mary the Virgin   church is early 14C and is Grade I listed. 

The chancel side windows and priest’s doorway demonstrate the date. 

The arcades inside are of four bays.  The widths of the arches vary curiously but this is explained by the fact they were altered when the roof was raised. Clearly there were five bays originally, because the two which are equal together cover two-fifths of the nave. The early 14C building also had a clerestory.

On the dado of the Screen, apart from the Saints, there are scenes from the Dance of Death, rare and interesting.

Many of the bench ends have poppy-heads. 

Organ case Gothic, probably of c.1800.  Chalice, Norwich 1567.

There is a brass to William Mustarder, Rector c.1490.
