Croxton, All Saints Church, IP25-1LL.



Croxton All Saints Church, locked on the day I called, numbers for a key, but no signal on my mobile. Such a shame, it really depresses me to find a church shut, and a beautiful round tower at that. Now on my returns list, maybe when I have visited all the others in Norfolk. Near Thetford, Round west tower with octagonal top, set on a slight incline, crowned with a spire, clock and 1 bell, nave with south aisle chancel and south porch. The style is a mixture of Decorated and Perpendicular. The chancel was rebuilt in 1884. There is a memorial window to the Reverend H. Williams, vicar from 1852-1891. This was erected in 1907. The font is of the Seven Sacrament type. Cautley wrote:
Croxton, All Saints Church, west tower, south porch, nave, south aisle and chancel. The round tower is probably Norman and has an octagonal top. The font is unusual. It is octagonal and except for a little canopy of carving under the rim, the panels are plain At the corners of the bowl are projections which terminate in carved drops. I have little doubt that originally it was of the Seven Sacrament type. Late hammer-beam roof to nave with traceried spandrils, 14th century arcade and a late 12th century priest's door.
