Salhouse All Saints Church NR13 6HD


Salhouse, All Saints, is a village not mentioned in The Domesday Book just as a hamlet to nearby Wroxham, All Saints was mentioned as a "Chapel" of Wroxham, there is little evidence of the 11th century one that stood here, the parish was linked to Wroxham, with the same incumbent, until 1935, there are monuments, an octagonal font, stained windows, Saint Stephen and Saint Agnes, both show on the glass, and a 19th century built organ at a cost of £300 mainly through the efforts of one Mrs Boddington. The church has lots of carvings, and a misericord (one only) the church also has three hatchments, these mounted on the chancel wall. west tower, south porch, nave, north aisle and chancel. This church is entirely thatched. I think the tower was never finished Cautley) , anyhow, it lacks a top storey, but it has nice sound holes. The 14th century arcade, only 6 feet by 6 inches to top of cap, is noteworthy for having carved caps, one with heads on it, the rest natural foliage. Modern roofs and benches and no chancel arch. Simple octagonl font with plain bowl and panelled shaft. The pulpit has some old tracery in the panels, and a good hour glass stand now used for a lamp. Over the modern screen is the Sanctus bell hanging in the gallows, as it does in the Mass scene on the Marsham font, and also in its original position on a beam above the altar rails at Somersham Suffolk. There is one misericorde in the chancel, one of the stainned glass widows has beautiful images and the words Sancta Agnes.( meaning "chaste". Saint Agnes was a virgin martyred during the persecutions of the Roman emperor Diocletian. The name became associated with Latin agnus "lamb", resulting in the saint's frequent depiction with a lamb by her side) Another saying Sanctus Stephanus (usually capitalised, prefixed to the person's name. "Sanctus Stephanus Protomartyr")
