Castle Acre Saint James Church.


Castle Acre Saint James Church, Check the graveyard and you will find some of my ancestral gravestone, it seems maybe there was a rift in the family, though some stones can be explained maybe by illiteracy, you can find Boldero, Bolderrow and Bolderro in the yard. This church has beautiful fixtures, including a decorated wine glass pulpit, a medieval decorated rood screen and lovely organ and tall ornately decorated font cover. Close to Castle Acre Priory and Castle Acre Castle, this small village with a lovely local public house, has a lot to look around. Restoration is ongoing, a large church, situated between the outer bailey of the local castle and the precinct of the local priory. Castle Acre Saint James Church, has Powerful Perpendicular west tower with west doorway, four-light w window with embattled transom, small quatrefoil openings in circles higher up and top battlements with flushwork panelling. North and South sides Perpendicular, except for the priests doorway of 14th century and three Decorated north windows. North doorway is tall with shields in diapered spandrels. North vestry, two-storeyed, with animals sitting on the corners. Inside a curious anomaly in arcades. Apparently quatrefoil piers of the 13th century, five bays. Font is tall, octagonal, with rolls curving up the edges from stem to bowl, Pevsner asks Is this 15th century? The font cover is very tall, fairly undecorated and quite plain. The church has misericords, a lion's head, a demi-figure of an angel, and an eagle. Rood screens has good paintings of 14th century rounded drapery folds. Of the parclose screen, only the framing remains.
