Beighton All Saints Church, west tower, south porch, nave, north and south aisles and chancel. The single framed scissor nave roof is thatched, with battens to tie the thatch to, and the thatch is cow-mouthed over the clerestory windows. Typical 13th century font with shallow arcading, and a very much restored screen of the vaulted type, of which I can only be sure the middle rail is original. This has a delicately traceried trail. The most interesting thing in this church, is the beautiful early 17th century yew chest, which depicts on the lid the story of Susannah and the Elders, and on the front contemporary figures. The scene are slightly sunk and the rest poker-work This is a very similar one to that at Rushbrooke, Suffolk. ladbrookes sketch of the church completed in the early 1800s shows the north aisle missing and the four arches blocked up. The north aisle was replaced in 1847 at a cost of £200 according to the original specification held by Norfolk Records Office. The church has flint and limestone dressing with what could be an amount of Roman stone and red brick on the east wall to the nave.  The Victorian pews in the nave and aisles have a great variety of poppy-head ends. At the west end of the north aisle there are two finely carved pew ends, one of a sow feeding 10 piglets and the other of a dog. At the east end of the south aisle is a carving of a pelican. The decorative glass is said to be some of the finest of its kind in Norfolk, the work of William Warrington.
