Little Massingham Saint Andrew's Church, Pictures taken when I had a brain tumour, so so sorry about the blurring caused by the tumour on some images. Little Massingham Saint Andrews is made up of some carrstone from nearby Hunstanton, the redness giving a striking look to this building. The tower is basically 14th century, but there is a polygonal stair turret, on the outside, probably added in the 16th/17th century, the belfry has three bells, two by John Draper cast in 1599 and 1609 and an older bell by Brayner, with the inscription "Hec Fit Stor Campana Laude Bonor". The church has a plain circular font and pews that date from a restoration project of 1858. The very ornate pulpit is of Caen stone, this dates from around 1857. Messent wrote of this church: Little Massingham Saint Andrews, square west tower, 3 bells, nave with aisles, chancel and south porch. The chancel is early Decorated period, but the rest is later in that period with a number of of Perpendicular windows inserted. The clerestory windows are square headed. There is a monument to Sir Charles Mordaunt, Bart., and to Walton D'Evill, of County Wicklow, Ireland, died 1648. Also tablets to the Godfrey and Stanford families. Cautley there as added, west tower, south porch, nave, north and south aisles and chancels. The 14th century tower was gableted set-off to lower stage of buttresses, and later brick and flint staircase on south side to ringing floor. 15th century porch with pinnacles and 14th century arcade with good label stops. There is a squint on north side of 14th chancel arch. Single hammer-beam and arch-braced roof to nave with collar, with three clerestory windows south side only.
