This church stands on a rise to the east of the village of Roughton, which straddles the A140 some 3 miles south of Cromer. It is dedicated to St Mary, the Virgin. It has a round tower dates from the Saxo-Norman period (late 11th Century). The Decorative-period chancel has an elegant east window with reticulated tracery. This Church was much altered by the Victorians who reroofed it and changed a lot of the chancel. The churchyard is still used for burials and the interment of ashes. The delightful stained-glass east window to the south aisle depicts the passage Matthew 25:35, “I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me”.
