Hales, Saint Margarets Church.



Hales, Saint Margaret's Church, near Loddon has an apsidal chancel, there aren't many in Norfolk, the only other one I can think of is Runcton, and I'm yet to venture inside that. Hales has a Round Tower and lots and lots of wall decoration. The church is of Norman foundation, with Early English windows in the top of the tower and in between the blocked up Norman ones in the chancel. The nave windows are early Decorated. Both north and south doorways are fantastic in there look and design, there is zigzag, cartwheel designs, and are the best I have seen. The roofs are thatched. An early sedilia remains in the chancel. Both font and cover are of interest. Hales, Saint Margaret's Church, near Loddon, round west tower, 1 bell, nave and apsidal chancel.
