Little Fransham Saint Mary's Church.

When looking for Churches with 12th century fonts, pews, George III.



Little Fransham Saint Mary Church, Fransham or Frandesham, meaning possibly a name derived from Old English fraemde or framede (strange) + ham (homestead). A beautiful church, once having its own tower, which alas collapsed in 1700, this was totally removed from the site, as too were the bells, they once stood here in the church grounds under a straw roofed cover, but have since been transferred to nearby Woodrising's St Nicholas Church. (Picture below) The font, dated from the 12th century stands on four legs, it is square with white metal liner, it has a different image on either side. The pews are highly carved at the back and a removable kneeling shelf is at the front for each sitting patron. The Royal Arms now hang on the north wall and are the arms of George III after the Union with Ireland of 1801. Little Fransham Saint Mary Church, south porch, nave, and chancel. Modern west end, but parvise over porch and nice 14th century windows. Very good late Norman square font with carved and arcaded bowl standing on four corner shafts and curiously enough standing diagonally. Simple hammer beamed and arch braced roof with traceried spandrils and arch braced between wall posts. Two of the nave traceried and pierced backs, as have some of the chancel seats, which also have grotesques on them. There are Royal Arms high up, but I think, Hanoverian. Stuart Table.
