Ickburgh, Saint Peter Church. One of my now favourite churches in Norfolk, it has everything I look for and yes, it has that WOW factor, this despite the windows being dirty. As a disabled, ex window cleaner, I just wanted to get out my old bucket and scrim. The north Victorian porch is so full of stained glass its a wonder one gets inside the church. Each window having a different piece of art to do with items of agriculture. There are also two stone carved dancing bears. And more inside. The bears are a link to the family "Baring", a limb associated to one Baron Ashburton a man that ploughed money into the same building that came into such decay that instead of restore, they rebuilt. This at a price of £2.250 in the year 1865-6, the only thing left was the tower. The church has some beautiful gargoyles. Ickburgh, Saint Peter Church, Cautley wrote: This is all modern, except the plain late 14th century tower. Messent wrote more: Ickburgh Saint Peter Church, near Brandon, has square west tower, a clock and on bell, nave with north aisle but no clerestory, chancel and north porch. The tower is in the Decorated style, but the rest of the church entirely re-built in 1866 by the late Lord Ashburton. He died in 1868 and there is a brass to him, and his son who died at Nice, France, two years previous. The pulpit is finely carved. Ickburgh was home to the Chapel of Saint Lawrence, this has gone to ruin, it was monastic as well as parochial.
