Calthorpe Our Lady Saint Margaret Church,
Calthorpe, Our Lady Saint Margaret Church, NR11-7QR.



Near Aylsham, Calthorpe Our Lady Saint Margaret Church, stands high on a hill, the entrance to the church is via a north door, hence the poor outside picture.Square west tower, 1 bell, nave and chancel. The chancel is Early English, and the nave mainly Perpendicular. The Great Hospital at Norwich Norfolk is patron of the living. Apart from the east window of 1822, the chancel is 13th century and in all probability so is the tower, although it looks as though it was updated when the nave was rebuilt in the 15th century. Inside, the tower arch is low and deeply molded brick with no capitals. There is no south porch, and the recess above the north door inside may have contained a Saint Christopher in the usual position opposite the main entrance. The 15th century font is very robust and has four amiable and well fed lions at the angles of the stem, with varied tracery between them and in the panels of the bowls. It has a bright new cover in the style of the period. The Laudian alter rails have been carefully restored and the ballustrading are are set diagonally, a thoughtful variation. The Consecration Crosses have been repainted and a fine new rood with its attendant figures has been placed on the original stone corbels above the chancel arch. This church is cherished and it shows it. Whilst there, the gentleman that lived opposite was trimming a yew tree, he stated that once on his roof, he could spy no less than 9 other churches in the distance. churchesofnorfolk by the Old Boi
