Dunston, near Norwich, Norfolk, The church of Dunston Saint Remigius is hidden in trees by what seems to be a popular lunchtime picnic area. Locked, no details of a key holder. Messent wrote: Square west tower, 3 bells, nave, chancel and south porch. The work is a mixture of Decorated and Perpendicular. There are two monuments to the Long family, dated 1750 and 1757: also a brass in the chancel to Clere Talbot and his two wives, 1649. A 15th century rood screen remains. There is some ancient stained glass. Cautley added: Dunston Saint Remigius Church, west tower, nave, chancel and modern vestry. traditional font and simple arch-braced roof to nave. Modern benches, but a nice simple and square-headed screen coloured and of the 15th century, this has ogee tracery having crocketted overlay and the most minute brattishing above. In the spandril of central opening is a lion fighting a dragon. The unusual feature is the modern alabaster lining to stone east window, it takes the place of a reredos and looks well. There is 14th century glass in the south chancel window. Mee added: The church is chiefly 14th century, but is much restored. Its flint tower is crowned with battlements and pinnacles; the fine old font has a bowl with roses, lions and angels; there are one or two old bench-ends; and the 15th century oak screen is painted in medieval colours. A 13th century lancet in the chancel has fine old glass showing Saint Remigius, the patron saint, as a bishop with a woman in blue and white kneeling imploringly before him. Below in gold glass, is a fine Saint Christopher with child, who holds a cross and orb. The east window is unusual in its effect indoors, for over the 14th century stonework, following its lines, is delicate modern carving in alabaster. For about 300 years Clere Talbot has been here with his two wives in brass. He was a doctor of Law, and we see him with pointed beard and frizzy hair, richly gowned. The wives are gruesome figures in shrouds, their hands crossed on their breasts.
