The base of the tower and doorway are Norman. The rest of the work is mainly Decorated. Several of the integral fittings are modern. Fundenhall, Small and tranquil, it lies among woods and wheatfields, with thatched cottages and gabled farmhouse in a winding lane, and one church greeting another across the meadows. With its ivied flint walls, and massive tower rising between the red roofs of the nave and chancel, Fundenhall's church looks its best outside, standing sturdily among the larch trees. Most of it is 14th century and much restored, but some of it has an older tale to tell. The base of the tower is Norman, with original windows in its north and south walls; the upper part comes from just after Agincourt, when John Daniel left 20 marks for the repair of the steeple. The Normans built the south doorway, carving its capitals; the small north doorway is English. The font has four quaint angels with long legs on the base. All that is left of the old oak screen is the entrance arch and canopy, which rests on the high uprights of the pointed arch leading to the chancel; but traces of painting can be seen.
