Brisley Saint Bartholomew's Church.



Brisley Saint Bartholomew's Church. Brisley meaning gadfly glade, briosa (gadfly) + leah (wood, grove, clearing). Whilst my visit coincided with recent refurbishments, this didn't dampen my time there, what with the church itself and finding a crypt, and its links to King's Lynn, was the highlight of many days trips. The church in Brisley, whose name derives from Old English briosa, meaning gad-fly and leah a clearing. rebuilt almost entirely in 1370 and 1460, it worked as a stop gap for people to be taken to Norwich Castle for persecution. The crypt said to be used as a sleep over for those being prosecuted. Once locked up the gaolers would travel just down the road to sleep more comfortably in another building. Brisley Saint Bartholomews Church, has: Square west tower, 4 bells, nave and aisles, chancel with crypt beneath the altar. It is mainly late Decorated and Perpendicular, the latter style most predominating. The present church was commenced about 1380. The rood screen remains. There is a three-decker pulpit with sounding-board. Several old pews with poppy heads. There are some indications of mural paintings. Two brasses in the chancel are dated 1531. The hand of individuals is often discernible, even if we cannot attribute names to them, A good example is provided by masons marks at New Buckenham and Weasenham Saint Peter. Recently Richard Fawcett made a major contribution to techniques of architectural history by showing that the same decorative features could be seen in more than one church, and therefore reveal the work of "Schools" of masons, or even of individuals. Thus, he had demonstrated at Hockwold, Larling and Croxton. They all have the same simple tracery of the early 14th century; that a particular kind of elongated quatrefoil was used in the Attleborough area after 1320, and has links to Norwich Cathedral and that the towers of Blofield, Brisley, Fakenham, Foulsham, Heydon, Ingham and Southrepps were all the work of one man in the mid-15th century and that a mason who designed Wiveton Saint Mary worked elsewhere in Norfolk in the second quarter of the 15th century. churchesofnorfolk by the Old Boi
