Pulham Saint Mary, Saint Mary the Virgin Church,



Pulham Saint Mary, Saint Mary the Virgin Church, I couldn't take outside photos as the builders were in renovating the church. But what a nice bunch of men they were. After going to the last church that was locked, (I couldn't believe it, it was in such a picturesque position). I was ready for a short break. I was pleased to see that much of the original rood screen was still there! The 15th century font looked beautiful with its fresh cut flowers highlighting it off perfectly. I looked up and saw one of the most beautiful ceilings in Norfolk. Pulham Saint Mary's Church had it all. Near Harleston, square west tower, a clock and 8 bells, nave with south aisle, chancel and south porch with parvis. The tower, chancel and east ends of the aisles are late Decorated, the rest is Perpendicular. The porch has fine ornament flush work, niches and ornamental pierced parapet and gable. There are several memorials, including  one to Thomas Inyon, M.A., died 1777, and another to John Swann, surgeon, died 1792. There is a brass to Simon de Walpole, Bishop of Norwich and Ely. The lower part of the rood screen is ancient, there are some fragments of ancient stained glass in some of the windows.
