Oxnead Saint Michaels Church NR10 5HB



Oxnead Saint Michaels Church, near Aylsham and Buxton, small square west tower, 1 bell, nave, chancel and south porch. The walls are mainly Early English, but some Decorated insertions exist, principally windows, of which the east one has fine tracery. The south porch is in the Queen Anne style. There are some monuments to the Paston family, including a very fine one to Clement Paston, who died in 1599 by Nicholas Stone of London. He was a famous naval commander during the reigns of Henry the VIII and Edward the VI. The Communion Plate is exceptionally large and handsome, and dates from between 1637-1688. The north chancel is in ruins. Cautley wrote, this secluded church through unhappy restoration, has lost most of its interest, except for the Paston tombs. There is also a Stuart table.
