Brinton, Saint Andrew Church, NR24-2QH.



Brinton, Saint Andrew's church has been a village place of worship for a period of time probably dating back to 1360. This is a small church, its capacity  is only 120 people. Services however are held regularly. The chancel was burnt down and has not been replaced, this before the re-roofing in 1544. The piscine is made up of part of the old chancel, the re-roofing also possibly included the fitting of pews, 1544 is seen on the end pew. There are rood stairs. this was a norm in many churches in the 15th century, though many were taken out or blocked up. The screen at Bale shows how the Rowell light and pulley for that worked. There is much stained glass in the church, though none ancient. The original font has been incorporated into the wall by the main door and replaced by a much larger version. A bell for the HMS Brinton, the last wooden hulled ship serving in the British navy, the ship now decommissioned. Brinton, Saint Andrew's church, west tower, south porch, nave, north aisle and north transept. The chancel has disappeared and the rood loft stairs are now in the extreme north east of sanctuary. 15th century arcade and a good arch-braced roof to nave with arch-braces between wall posts and under ridge. The intermediate principals have angels under them. The cornice has a deep and continuous row of quatrefoils like the roof at Salthouse. A splendid example of the Elizabethan "fruitful and profitable sentences" is on the north wall at the west end, with its coloured border complete. 14th century octagonal font and a good chest. The benches are dated 1544 RP, and have interesting figures on them, a man riding a lion, another sitting crossed legged with a barrel under his arm, and another of a tun with flames under it which may be a rebus on the name of the village Brin (Burnt) tun. Other features are a 13th century pillar piscina, a very small scratch dial cut on the jamb of south door before the porch was built, an early ring handle knocker on the door and a niche below the west window. churchesofnorfolk by the Old Boi
