Kelling's Saint Mary the Virgin Church.

Kelling's Saint Mary the Virgin Church.



Kelling Saint Mary the Virgin Church is located about a mile from the village towards Holt, a small Norfolk town, one of a hive of activity! Saint Mary's has one of the only 15th century Easter Sepulchres in Norfolk, its made of stone, unlike others that were made of wood. North tower, north porch, nave, north transept and chancel. There are also curious remains of a south transept. Modern roof and benches. In the north transept are the widest rood loft stairs Cautley had ever seen.  Nice 15th century font with round the top of the bowl a mutilated inscription asking prayers for de Kelling and Beatrice his wife the donors of the font, a very unusual place for such an inscription. Chequered parapet to the 15th century tower. Perfect example of an Easter Sepulchre but unfortunately the floor of chancel has been raised and rather spoils the effect. The Arms are initialed G.R. 1797, but the changing of the shield has not been altered and the motto "Semper Eadem" seals as Anne's! The church has an aisle-less nave. The church is mainly Perpendicular in style. It has possible remains of Norman windows above the north door, a 14th century doorway in a 15th century porch, a lovely 15th century font, and 15th century glass in the south nave windows. The chancel window is that of Saint Francis, to the south are ruins of a transept or chapel, and the church has a commissioned wall painting in the lady chapel.
