Great Hockham Holy Trinity Church.



The very impressive building of Great Hockham's Holy Trinity Church has stained glass inside by maker, Charles Kempe, (1837-1907) and Bryans, 19/20th century, Glandford and Bessingham windows. (Golden Garb/Wheatsheaf- Golden Garb and Black Tower inside), the village of Great Hockham is situated around 8 miles from Attleborough, Thetford and Watton. The church can be reliably dated from the 13th century, although most dates from the 14th century and 15th century. The wooden bellcote on on top of the nave roof served for a time, but eventually the bells were sold and the present steeple erected. It has been said that two of the bells were sold to Shropham church. Here is now one bell which has the words Thomas Newman of Norwich made me inscribed on it. This made in 1774 and as a gift from the Partridge family who owned the nearby Hall in 1854. A large shield was erected in the church to proclaim this gift. The font is octagonal and dates from 13th century as tracery patterns on fonts lagged behind those on windows by about 20-30 years. On thing locals are very proud of are the churches beautiful wall paintings. These were revealed in 1954 when work was carried out on the roof. They must have been stunning when new, and even 600 years later they still look spectacular. Great Hockham Holy Trinity Church, near Attleborough, octagonal turret and spirelet, 1 bell, nave with aisles, chancel and south porch. The style is mainly decorated wit a few later insertions. The tower fell early in the 18th century. There is a piscina in the chancel. The church is situated in a park. Below is a video of stone manonary skills. https://youtu.be/HFQACbvDX2A.
