Foxley Saint Thomas Church, Near Foulsham, square west tower, 6 bells, nave, chancel and south porch. The chancel is Early English, but the rest of the church is mainly Perpendicular, the tower is of very fine, lofty proportions with four slender pinnacles. There are plastered ceilings inside and west gallery. Plain late 14th century font and late 15th century screen, formerly vaulted and with a filigree of double cusping in the arch at the top. The screen has doors with four painted panels, inscribed for the donors who appear at the bottow of the panels. it lies pretty and compact, in the shadow of a handsom tower standing like a stalwart guardian of its ancient church Foxley Saint Thomas Church, The tower is 500 years old and the chancel 200 years older, quiant with its box pews for the choir. Here is a fine 15th century screen from which a panel has been cut to give entry to the three-decker pulpit. Four saints are painted in rich colours on its doors, two wearing mitres and the others with inscriptions petitiong prayers for the donors, whose kneeling figures are in the corners; one is a strange figure holding a music book, wearing a big red hat and a red dress spackled with golden flowers. One of the many old bench-ends with poppyheads of varying design has a tainy head carved on it, and perched quainly on the cover of the traceried font is a golden bird with wings and tail outspread. Among its plate, Foxley has Paten of 1350, perhaps the oldest in Norfolk. (Mee)
