Oxborough Saint John the Evangelist Parish Church

and Bedingfeld Chantry Chapel.


Oxborough, or Oxenburch meaning Old Fort or frequented by Oxen Oxa (oxen) + burg (fortified place) set next to Oxborough Hall and in front of the Bedingfeld Arms. This church on the corner before going into nearby Oxborough Hall. Once a church with a stone spire, and comparable to Snettisham and even Norwich's Cathedral. Stone spires are rare in village churches of Norfolk. The Spire fell in a storm when struck by lightning, it was rebuilt, but fell again after 70 years, when it collapsed one fine April morning in 1948, children were in the nearby playground on the other side of the green at the time. The church was closed to the public for 8 years, it was cleaned up and open to the state you see it today. In 2018 I visited it again to get photos of the back wall graffiti, lead had been stolen from the roof and the rain had got it. There were buckets everywhere and the water had penetrated near where the terracotta  counter was.
