Poringland, All Saints Church, rather drab in its look and what a terrible eyesore of an addition on the back that actually fronts the main road that everyone sees. The church looks lovely on its south side, but with its unkempt notice board and its poor building finishings, locked on my visit, this church until unlocked is never going to be a loved building. Originally written about by Pevsner, he mentions Round tower with octagonal top. Decorated chancel, see the north windows, the handsome three niches in the e wall and the chancel arch, if the latter can be trusted. Perpendicular nave with a clerestory with brick windows. Brick entrance to the north porch. The south porch seems to be of 17th century brick Gothicised in the 19th century. Hammer-beam roof on wall-posts with longitudinal arched braces. they have foliage in the spandrels. The arched braces rising from the hammerbeams carry collar-beams. The font is octagonal. Against the four lions, against the bowl the signs of the four Evangelists, two lions, one flower and an angel. Benches with poppy heads. There is stained glass from the 14th century in the chancel.
