Salle, Saint Peter and Saint Paul Church,



Salle saint Peter and Saint Paul, church, Salle or Sall, or Salla, meaning Sallow wood, Old English salh (sallow willows) + leah (wood, grove, clearing). what a beautiful place to stumble on when looking for somewhere else. Spotting this high towered church on the horizon, I knew I would have to go there. From the Angels on the front door entrance to the angels decorating its roof, this church looks more at place in a major city. The church Perpendicular in shape. it was built in such a shorter period that change didn't happen here. Building began in the reign of Henry V 1405-1413 and was mostly completed by 1414. Falling into disrepair, in the 19th century, it underwent a refurbishment. And what a good job was done. With thanks to Sir Woolmer White, the then owner of the Salle Estate, and Sir Alfred Jodrell and others refurbishment began. Special items of interest here now include a Seven Sacrament Font with a tall font cover, though most of the very intricate work has gone. A "Wine Glass pulpit" and cover/canopy, there are a few in this area of Norfolk. It was built in 1611 and John Knivett paid for a reading desk and clerks seat. It has a screen, and the most ornate wood carvings and three glass windows by H. Bryans of London. The tower is 111ft high and was built 1422-1461. The top storey added in the fifteenth century. There are brasses with connections to Anne Boleyn. Shroud brass to John Brigge d. 1454 at Salle Norfolk. "Here lyeth JOHN BRIGGE undir this marbil ston, whos sowle our Lord Ihu have mercy upon. So frendis fre whatever ye be pray for me I you pray, as ye me see in soche degre so schall ye be a nothir day". There is also a memorial to Mary Evans 1798 by sculptor J. Ivory and De Carle. Stained Glass, Seaweed Pattern: This originated in the 14th century and appears either as a tightly curled form (Saxlingham Nethergate) but is often of looser appearance like here. Again it is found in a number of churches including Saint Peter Mancroft (east window: Adoration of the Magi panel) and East Harling (east window: Sir Robert Wingfield panel). Ears of Barley: Thus called because the design resembles ears of barley lain in rows, although it probably derived from an attempt to depict the grain in wood. Examples can be seen in a variety of churches including Saxlingham Nethergate and again here at Salle. The organ is built or constructed by Norman & Beard Ltd of London.
The rood screen from Salle, and a bench-end from Gateley (with an identical example at Great Walsingham).
