Hilborough All Saints Church,,set off the main Mundford to Swaffham road, this beautiful church really needs looking at. I went when it was closed, a situation of so many Norfolk churches despite appeals to open them. You cannot earn money from a locked building during the day. It has so many beautiful features on the outside, one not being the destroyed gravestones caused by tree felling. Hilborough All Saints Church, west tower, south porch nave, north and south aisles, chancel and chancel chapels. This is a charming and little restored church, with a beautiful tower the lower storey at the west being fine with niches flanking the doorway, a tracery band above with the Arms of Clifton, and a nice west window with the string course carried round it. The parapet is pierced and traceried and one of the best in the country. The porch also is nice with flushwork to base course, having crowned M's and erect swords crowned for Saint Michael, canopied niche over entrance arch and original roof. Early 14th century arcades with four large three-light clerestory windows, a single hammer-beam and arch-braced roof with small collar and arch-braced between wall pots. Plain arched-braced roofs to aisles and chancel. Traceried bowl to font with 37" wide bowl. Plain 15th century benches with arm rests, one with pierced back. An interesting and rare relic is the old iron brazier. The Arms of James I is one of the most interesting in the country. Finally it has a double piscina and sedilia with pedimented and cusps heads, with good carved heads as stops to the hood mould. There is a memorial to Ralph Caldwell dated 1792, by sculptor J. Ivory and De Carle.
