Norwich Saint Simon and Saint Jude Church



Norwich Saint Simon and Saint Jude Church, at the corner of Elm Hill and Wensum Street, lower portion of square west tower (the top half collalsed in 1913), nave, chancel and north porch. This church is disused and fat falling into decay. It is to be hoped that something will be done before it is too late, Messents words, The architectural style is early Perpendicular. There are associations in this church with Kett's Rebellion, as an entry in the register shows that four Knights who came into Norwich with the Earl of Warwick in the reign of Edward VI, were killed in engagement on Mousehold on the 27th August, 1549, with Kett, the Wymondham tanner, and were buried in one grave in the chancel. There is a monument to Thomas Pettus, died 1613. There is a panelled door in the vestry, with the figure of Saint Simon in one spandrel and three fishes entwined in the other. There is some ancient stained glass in some of the windows. Arms to George III.
