Higham Saint Andrews Church.



Hingham Saint Andrews Church, west tower, south porch, nave south and north, aisles and chancel. This is a noble church in spite of its modern roofs and fittings. The 14th century tower is fine, with a good traceried base course and under the first string course a trail cut in the flush stonework. The rectangular buttresses have a splay in the angles, and there is a fine western doorway and window above. Clustered columns to its 14th century nave arcades and a Sanctus bell window in the tower. There was a good canopied sedilia, but it is terribly mutilated. the east window which was curiously treated to fit glass imported from abroad, this dating circa 1500, is of seven lights. The centre light has Saint Anne and another Saint, whilst the scenes occupy three lights each, top left the Crucifixion, bottom left the Deposition, top right the Ascension and bottom right the Resurrection. The feature of the church is the enormous and beautiful Morley tomb which undoubtedly was used as an Easter Sepulchre. There are Arms of George III, (known as the Insanity King, 1810-1820.
