North Lopham Saint Nicholas Church.


On arriving at North Lopham Saint Nicholas Church, on a separate day from visiting South Lopham's prestigious church of Saint Andrew, and parking in the small car-park space, I immediately thought this a much older building. It had some parts that looked more modern, but the overall look, made me think the former. Tower, nave s. aisle, s. porch and chancel. The s. porch is 14th century. Inside the font has shallow tracery and the bowl wider at the top than the bottom. The church has a beautiful 14th century chest with three locks. Also a George III arms.There is a Stuart table and some mutilated poppy head bench ends. Stated previously there is a plain sturdy tower, with above the first string course an imprecatory inscription, and above this the series of stones with initials with may have been the donors. On researching I found a stone outside to probably be that of Thomas Aldrych, a stone mason who previously lived in North Lopham, and was renowned for his work with knapped flints in both Norfolk and Suffolk. Many thanks to the two ladies who attended the church whilst I was there, they quenched my thirst and enriched my morning with a few hymns played on the churches organ. I noticed the lack of toilet facilities, which I find the church would benefit from. North Lopham Saint Nicholas Church,  North Lopham church. has a list of gravestone inscripions compiled by the WI. So helpful as many inscriptions are barely legible. There are many Beales and Womacks, including a young boy Claude who died tragically in nearby Kenninghall. He has a headstone, apparently unusual for a child at that time. Surname List: Graves
