Kenninghall, Saint Mary's Church, Described by Munro Cautley as a fine flint panelled base course of the 15th century, and a good Norman south door with engaged columns, rather unusual arch moulds and horse and lions carved on jambs. The scratch dial is of course anterior to the 15th century porch. There's a good 15th century steeple cover to 14th century font with telescopic action and 9' 6" high. The church has a simple poor man's box and a few nice benches at the west end. There are Royal Arms to Elizabeth and Charles I.  Kenninghall, Saint Mary's Church, has a square west tower, a clock and 8 bells, a nave with north aisle, chancel and south porch. The south doorway is a good specimen of Norman work with carvings of a horse and lion. The chancel is Decorated, the rest of the church mainly Perpendicular. There are some old benches and a good font, and cover, there is also a painting of the Royal Arms of Queen Elizabeth. There is some fine stained glass and a beautiful organ. The pulpit is very beautiful. The church of this historic village has a sturdy 15th century tower buttressed to the battlements; the chancel and the nave are 600 years old. The nave has quatrefoil and clerestory windows, a quaint piscina, and on an arm-rest of one of its old pews is a lion with a curly mane standing on his hind legs and holding on to a tree trunk. By two medieval brackets on a wall are two groups of brass portraits showing five girls with long hair and five boys in flowing gowns, all unknown. A fine old door with its ancient ring still swings in the Norman doorway, on which is a fragment of a mass dial, and by the pillars of the doorway are carvings of a prancing horse and lion trying to catch its tail.
The organ is built or constructed by Norman & Beard Ltd of London.
