Banham, Saint Mary the Virgin Church.



Banham, Saint Mary the Virgin Church, Banham, Benham, Homestead where beans are grown,Old English bean + ham (Homestead), the church contains a beautiful lead spire capping its tower, also some Whitefriars Stained Glass in their windows, the other windows themselves are predominantly of the Decorated period, with the inevitable Victorian additions. This is particularly true of the somewhat “exuberant” east window and much of the glass. Five of the windows have been designed by J Powell & Sons, (Whitefriars) the same distinguished London firm who completed all of the windows at the nearby St John the Baptist, Garboldisham. These are supplemented by other windows of varying quality including one 16th century panel. Banham is a beautiful church on a village green, it has a new glass partition that was erected in the early millenium, most of Saint Mary's is 14th century, the bell tower may be the first with a Y tracery and quatrefoil sound holes. It has a lovely lead spire. The chancel arch is of double-hollow-chamfered arch type, And the impressive nave timbered roof carries a date of 1622. One of the most pleasant churches I have been in. Outside is a village green with a delightful village shop.
