Bintree, Saint Swithin Church, A very sunny day when visiting Saint Swithun's Church, so hopefully 40 days and nights, though the forecast is rain tomorrow. Bintree, or Bintry as it was, is a beautiful church. Its tower is just in the middle of the 14th century, (Decorated Period). It has a battlemented parapet atop. And could well have been a gift from the Bacon family. It once contained four bells, one was sold in 1864 and the money used to buy a pulpit. There looks what is like an old font pedestal, this is not mentioned in the church guide, but of similar size to those at Sandringham and of Burgh Parva, (May be nothing at all) the church has a 14th century chest, this has two small slots, thought to be "Peter Pence" Peter's Pence (or Denarii Sancti Petri and "Alms of Saint Peter") are donations or payments made directly to the Holy "See" of the Catholic Church. The practice began under the Saxons in England and spread through Europe. Bintree, Cautley wrote: west tower, south nave, south aisle, south transept and chancel. Modern roofs and fittings. 14th century font with traceried bowl, large iron bound 14th century chest and 12th century pillar piscina. Messent added, square west tower, 3 bells, nave, south aisle, large south transept, chancel and south porch. It is mainly in the Decorated style, but the chancel was rebuilt in 1806. There is a fine monument to Lord James Townsend. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lord_James_Townshend A Norman piscina was discovered in 1903. Several fittings are modern.  churchesofnorfolk.com by the Old Boi
