Clippesby Saint Peter Church, Clippesby or Clepesbei, meaning Klyppr's village. Old Norse Klyppr + by (settlement, village) west tower, south porch, nave and chancel. Round Norman tower with octagonal top. The north door is Norman with engaged shaft and arch of three orders. The font has a nice traceried shaft, and a bowl supported by eight cross-winged angels. Modern roofs and fittings. Two 13th century lancets on north nave and a little niche in east jamb of south east nave window, with painted canopy and sacred monogram diapered on back. Early 13th century piscina with engaged shaft, small brass below it dated 1504 and a Stuart table. When John Clippesby left for ever the woods and cornfields of his manor three centuries ago, he left a good name behind as well as his brass portrait on the floor of this church. It shows hi in armour, and with him Juliana his wife, their son in a shroud, and three daughters. the other fine portraits in brass are of Thomas Pallying and his wife, Thomas dying in 1503, a civilian in fur-trimmed gown, carrying a purse on his belt. The church was old even in their time, for the Normans built the round tower with was given its octagonal belfry only 100 years ago. The north doorway with zigzag moulding is restored, and by it, inside the church, is a holy water stoup from the dawn of the 13th century. As old as the stoup is a pillar piscina niche in the chancel. The tiniest of mass dials, two inches across, is on the porch. which comes from about 1400, embodying part of a Norman doorway. On the inside of the entrance is part of the Norman arch carved with zigzag, and here too are curious old carvings. One shows a woman with arms raised as if in petition, a veil over her head; she is carved roughly in a circle no more than three inches across. There are also tracers of animals and a bird. The inner doorway has a little star pattern, and frames a 19th century door with tracery and roses. Eight cross-winged angels support the shallow bowl of the old font, and saints adorn the poppyheads of the stalls, which have signs of the Evangelists on the arm-rests. The is much stained glass. (Mee), Clippesby Saint Peter Church, near Acle, round west tower with octagonal top storey, 1 bell, nave, chancel, south porch. The base of the tower is as said Norman, the top Early English. The rest of the church is mainly a mixture of these two styles, and includes the two fine Norman doorways. There is a brass to the Clippesbye family, dated 1594, and another to the Pallinge family, dated 1508. There are also several tablets to the Muskett family. Mass dial outside the porch was used to indicate the times of the Holy Communion Service.
