East Harling Saint Peter and Saint Paul Church, a fine looking church, spoken about by Pevsner, saying it was a "spectacular church to look at" It has a 13th century tower, topped by a 15th century lead spire, it has eight flying buttresses lifting it up to the skies and adding its support and strength, inside the church has what seems a Decorated style chancel, with Perpendicular windows, there is also a seven-foiled circular window. There was an old church of 1784,converted and enlarged, The church has rood screens, monuments, it has hammer-beam ceilings, all with added spandrels. Them selves decorated in a most elegant style. It has misericords, a big, octagonal font, with panelled stem and quatre-foil bowl, and Jacobean panels in the porch, the day I went the church even had an organ player practising. I had to be really teased away.
