We have different Periods here at Deopham Saint Andrew Church, along with the Perpendicular tower, we have a east window and north arcade of the same period. Then we have aisle windows, they are Decorated Period. Deopham, Saint Andrew Church. west tower, south porch, nave, north and south aisles and chancel. The tower is the feature of this church though I'm not sure that is very satisfactory. Starting with a quite inadequate base course and a rather inadequate first stage, which has a very shallowly cut trail beneath the string course, it has huge rectangular buttresses with nice intermediate set-offs, and between them a huge splay, and at the top these finish with octagonal pinnacles rising above the parapet. The parapet itself has a pedimented gable on each face rising above it. This is all somewhat reminiscent of a few Somerset towers, and is quite unlike any East Anglian towers. Well traceried early 15th century south doors, a simple 16th century octagonal font and part of the base of a 15th century screen with diapering front and back. Arch-braced cambered tie-beam roof, arch braced between wall post and under ridge. 15th century arcades to north aisle and early 14th century to south Sanctus bell window in tower and fragments of 14th century glass. One very unusual slab. (Cautley)
