Ketteringham, Saint Peter Church, I was dying to get into this lovely little church, Ketteringham is my aunts name, and she came from this area. There was no key holder and the church was locked. Ketteringham Saint Peter Church, must have been open when Pevsner did his visit of the church during north-west and south Norfolk. Pevsner talks of a font that is octagonal with fleurons in panels on the stem, and on the bowl the signs of the Evangelists, a seated figure and two flowers. Unable to get inside, square west tower, a clock and 5 bells, with two full-sized statues of angels, one of Saint Peter and one large pinnacle, nave, chancel with north vestry and north porch. The tower fell in 1608 and was rebuilt the following year. The rest of the church is mainly Perpendicular, the chancel having been built in 1492 by Sir Henry Grey. Fragments of stained glass remain in the east window, which was originally a memorial to his family. There are also memorial to his family. There are also memorials to the following families: Peach, Heveninghams, Colvyles, Wrights, Atkyns, and Boileaus, all of whom were great benefactors to the church especially the last named in recent years. The richly carved early font is of interest, from Messent's visit   (Locked) The memorial for Edward Atkyns of 1807 is by Sir Richard Westcott, A.R.A. The Peach memorial is 1825 and sculptured by Flaxman R.A. of London, he also did one for renown poet William Cowper 1800 of East Dereham Church.
Plus one to Edward Atkyns and other by sculptor Robert Page.
