Its people are few, and its 13th century church stands alone in a field, looking rather like a barn with cattle grazing under its red-roofed walls, for there is no churchyard. A field away is the white walled rectory in the trees. One bell hangs in its turret. The nave and chancel are 51 feet long and 18 feet wide, divided by an old oak screen. The chancel has its old east window of three lancets. On the stone seat for the priest is a piscina. The round font on five pillars comes either from Norman days at each end of the stem. There is Jacobean carving in some of the benches and in the squire's pew, and attached to the Jacobean pulpit, below its desk, is a reading-ledge. A small old chest is a mass of carving. churchesofnorfolk.com by the Old Boi
