Northrepps Saint Mary Church NR27 0LG, Currently having its roof repaired, this church as Mortlock describes as "Although there are traces of earlier work, ie, the chancel lancet windows" and the arcades are 14th century, the rest of the church is mainly 15th century in style, with a good deal of 19th century restoration. The tower is a compact design with good detail. The 15th century rood screen was rescued from a barn and eventually restored to its proper place: although much of it is new work. It does have an inscription mentioning its donor, John Playford and his wife. The 16th century bench ends are conventional except that the western most poppyheads are halved and squared off intentionally, unusual. Under the tower is a "Gallas" plough (Last image), these were famous throughout the 19th century Norfolk, and were made at a local foundry here. Northrepps Saint Mary's Church, has a west tower, south porch, nave north and south aisles and chancel. 15th century tower with sound holes, and 14th century ironwork to south door which formerly held a ring handle. Plain 14th century font, 14th arcades with four two-light clerestory windows above, and a few plain 16th century bench ends with poppy heads. Nice arch-braced roof to nave (no collar) with good quatrefoil cornice, arch braced between wall posts and to ridge. Fine coved screen much restored, middle rail inscribed and some of the old traceried panels of base remain, but no colour. Stuart table and Arms of George III, but the shield not changed for Hanover and obviously Stuart.
