Pentney Mary Magdelene Church.

Pentney Mary Magdelene Church. Open on the day I went, the church has pictures inside of items that were found in the graveyard by a grave digger. These are now property of the museums. The oldest part of the church is Norman, as it has very thick walls of that period. The church however is quite short and is believe to have had a semi circular apse for its chancel, this similar to those of Christ church Christchurch and Saint James Church, Runcton Holme. The community was small then, but there was also a Norman monastery about 1.3/4 miles away. The church has four gargoyles. A brass tablet on the wall of the chancel tells of Thomas Paul, who was churchwarden here for 65 years! He died in 1907 aged 88. The classical style wall mount is dated 1805 for the window of the Rev. N Lancaster, and exhibits the name of the local stonemason Eldridge of Lynn, he also did work in South Wootton and West Bilney churches.
