Billockby, All Saints Church, NR29-3BQ



Billockby, All Saints Church, west tower, south porch, and nave all in ruins, the chancel only remaining intact and is thatched. Modern roof and fittings. Plain 15th century font with a little fringe of brattishing round the top of bowl. The ruins show that this church had once fine windows and other features. This church near Acle was struck by lightning and almost entirely burnt down several years ago. it now consists only of chancel, which is thatched; there is one bell, and remains of nave and west tower. Alone in amongst the trees in a field, this was a 14th century church, though in ruin, caused by a fire after being hit by a lightning strike in a great gale of 1762. This leaving what was once a very fine building in ruins. The tower, porch, and nave were hit. The chancel remained to serve as the present church, There is a good north doorway, the rood loft stairs are virtually complete and on the south side of the nave, note the curious ragged staff set at an angle in the flushwork by the side of each window. In looks it looks like that of Barningham Winter. The configuration and tower to chancel, how the church has been ruined is almost the same.
