Early 14th century. The sanctuary has a large aumbry in the north wall and in the south east corner Bacon's tomb. Arthur Mee wrote, it lies about a green at the meeting of two lanes, and has a tiny church dedicated to Saint Swithin, who is remembered less for his saintliness than for his place in weather lore. Its one possession of distinction is the round tower, built by the Normans. Incidently the smallest and lowest in Norfolk. In the 14th century nave are some old bench-ends, and in the chancel is Elizabethan altar tomb of Honor Bacon, a bride who died on the eve of her wedding day. A beautifully clean church, much loved and well looked after. No toilet as of 2018.

When people tried to communicate, it turned into a whole babble of confused voices. Soon, everyone who spoke the same language left the city together, and in this way, they spread out across the world, taking their different languages with them.

This is why the tower is called the tower of “babel.” Perhaps the origin of the word “babble”.

Moral

The pride of the people of Babylon led to their downfall, just like Satan, they wanted to be like God. We must humble ourselves before the Lord.
