Horningtoft Saint Edmund's Church, Horningtoft is so called: it is Old English for Horninghetoft, a plot of land belonging to the people of Horning Old English horna (Bend) +ingas (the people of) + Old Norse toft (plot of land, house, homestead). This church belongs to a group of churches called "Upper Wensum Churches" in this group of churches are Dunton, Great Ryburgh, Sheresford, Colkirk, Oswick, Whissonsett, Gateley, Horningtoft and Brisley. Sheresford, said to be a church with an appealing simplicity. On entering this church set back from a small intertwining road, I was almost brought to tears, a smile showed on my face and an "at home" emotion filled my bones. "What a beautiful space", It once had a tower, this evidently seen from the still surviving stone mounds outside the front door. A new entrance was made over the south side, but that too has gone. The building today therefore more sedate in it's appearance. That is outside, inside there is a mix of highly decorated items, a decorated rood screen, decorated pulpit, decorated alter and a highly decorated carved font.  Horningtoft Saint Edmund's Church,near North Elmham, west bell cot, 1 bell, nave and chancel. The work is mainly Early English with some later insertions. The tower fell in 1796. A screen separates the nave and chancel. The ancient font is of interest. Modern roofs and benches, Good traditional font on steps shaped like a Maltese Cross. Simple square-headed screen, all repainted, and a large aumbry. The chancel weeps slightly to the north.
