Mautby Saint Peter and Saint Paul Church

Mautby Saint Peter and Saint Paul Church, near Caister on Sea, round tower with octagonal top storey, 1 bell, nave with south aisle, no clerestory, chancel and south porch. The base of the tower is Norman and Early English above. The south aisle was rebuilt in 1884. The roofs are thatched. There is an early monument  with effigy in armour to a member of the Mautby family, also a tablet to the Rev. R.G. Lucas, a former rector, died 1771. There is some ancient stained glass in some of the windows. There is a simple but nice 15th century font on two steps, and a contemporary but much restored cover. The benches are modern, also the roof. I the coffin below the effigy are still the bones after 600 years. This must have been rebuilt as the piers and arch remain of a south aisle. Good square 15th century screen with panels which once contained figures still stands. And an elevational squint on south side and return stalls a good deal restored. Good sedilia and double piscina, early 14th centry, with piers and cinquefoiled arches and fragments of 14th century glass in tracery lights.
