Honington Saint Pauls Chapel Church NR9 5AF



Honington Saint Pauls Chapel Church, yet another church that is on the border between Norfolk and Suffolk with a Norfolk postcode. There  is a good stone and flint panelled front south porch with traceried base, enriched parapet and three canopied niches. Inside is a Norman south door with two engaged columns to jambs, one with knops, and an arch of three enriched orders, with carved drip stone and terminals besides. The chancel arch is also Norman 6' 3" wide and 7' 4" to springing. The feature of the church is the 14th century font with traceried shaft and bowl, the eastern panel of bowl having a finely carved crucifixion. On the wall of the nave above the south door, damaged and faint are wall paintings of the story of Saint Nicholas and the martyrdom of Saint Thomas of Canterbury. There is a Stuart holy table, late Stuart rails and a few poor poppy headed benches in chancel, only notable for carvings on arm rests of a bag-piper and unicorn. The brass effigy is of George Duke, 1954. There is one pre-reformation bell by Brasyer, inscribed with the salutation.
