Mee wrote: At a corner of its crooked street stands the flint church with a 14th century tower, quaint with its eight sides, a door halfway up and quatrefoil sound holes between the belfry windows and the parapet. The rest of the old work is 13th century. The chancel and its arch and the porch were made new in the restoration of 1871, but fragments of Norman are built into the porch and the chancel keeps its east window with butterfly tracery. The 500-year old font has shields showing the lion and fleur-de-lys of England and France, the keys of Peter and the swords of Paul, the arms of the see of Norwich and the emblem of the Trinity. Nine seats have old poppyhead ends carved with flowers. An inscription to William Newman tells us that in gratitude for the kindness shown him when he was brought up here as a poor London boy in the 18th century he left £500 to the poor of Kettlestone for ever.
