Antingham Saint Mary Church.



Antingham Saint Mary Church, west tower, south porch, nave, and chancel (no chancel arch). This church has a plain 14th century tower and nave 26 feet wide an arch-braced roof, no collar. Typical 13th century font on columns and 15th century glass in the tracery of north nave showing angels striking bells. There are two heads on north and south walls of chancel, which probably had to do with the lenten veil. Nice Calthorpe brass 1562, with 19 children. In the same churchyard are the ruins of Saint Margaret's Church, fenced off for safety. The gable end was being restored whilst I was there (2018). 3 miles north west of North Walsham. There where once two churches here in the same graveyard, erected by two sisters, I have heard this said before of Reedham and its three churches in one yard. The latter here Saint Margaret's has long been a ruins. The tower is now overgrown with ivy as shown, The ivy has done a great deal of damage, and the wide crack down the centre of the west side of the tower had opened considerably and that there was possibility of the tower entirely collapsing. The latter sentence was added by Messent, he also went on to say: near North Walsham, square west tower, 1 bell, nave chancel and south porch, which was rebuilt in 1882, after the old one had been blown down. Mainly 14th century work throughout.Memorials to the Fermour, Keeson, and Kemp families. Brasses on one of which is portrayed figures of Richard Calthrop, Esq., and his children.
