Burnham Norton Saint Margaret's Church.



Burnham Norton Saint Margaret's Church, The Saxon round tower was built at the beginning of the first millennium, the church was extended in the 13th century, with later improvements in the 15th. In Victorian times the nave was screened to form a ‘church within a church.’ The pews have heating beneath them.  There is a fine Norman font and a 1450 wine glass pulpit (not used). The chancel screen dates from the same period.  The small organ is by Roger Pulham and was installed in the 1980s. St Margaret's is affiliated to the Prayer Book Society, therefore the services are almost always from the Book of Common Prayer.  Thus there is provision for parishioners whose expression of worship is still found in this 400-years-old liturgy. West tower, north porch, nave, north and south aisles and chancel. The round Norman tower is intact except for its later parapet. 13th century north doorway. Modern roof and benches, but early 13th century arcade on north, which I think had seats around the base (Cautley) and 14th century in the south. Burnham Norton Saint Margaret's Church, has fine square late Norman font with five legs and slightly patterned bowl. The brackets for the rood beam appear on either side of chancel arch and arch is mortised for old tympanic filling. Two brackets for images appear on either side of chancel arch. The painted rood screen dated 1548 was vaulted and has remains of filigree cusping at head and mutilated panels below. Formerly the following could be made out, the B.V.M., King Ethelbert, Saint Gregory, together with the donors William and Joan Groom with inscribed labels. The special feature of the church is the hexagonal pulpit with beautifully painted panels of the four Latin Doctors together with portraits of the donors and inscribed "orate P....JOHANNIS GOLDALE ET KATHERINE UXORIS SUE...FECERUNT FIERI" (Pray for John Goldale and Katherine his wife. They had it made.) The pulpit has a Jacobean back board and canopy. The Arms of George IV. churchesofnorfolk by the Old Boi
