Sea Palling, Saint Margaret of Antioch Church, As much a Museum to the Sea Pallings Lifeboats the RNLI and PVRS, as a religious building. If it wasn't for the pews, the rood screen and rood stairs, the Font and the look of the church itself. There has been a church on this site for over 1000 years. Built in the late Saxon Period, and also added to in the Decorated Period. I'd say one of the eldest things at the church is the small triangular topped window on the tower itself. The rest clearly Decorated Period. Mortlock and Roberts wrote, Sea Palling Saint Margaret, Early unbuttressed west tower, and what was a 14th century nave, aisles and chancel arrangement, the aisles have gone, leaving blocked windows to the west. The font is 14th century with shallow tracery round the bowl like an exercise in window design. A large banner stave locker hides behind the organ, and there are rood loft stairs with square-headed doorways and an associated piscina. A series of boards listing lifeboat rescues 1860-1929 are propped up behind the decayed remains of the rood screen. Most of the south door is original 15th century. The lifeboat boards are now on show around the church walls, making it more like a museum to the sea.  Sea Palling, Saint Margaret of Antioch Church, west tower, south porch, nave and chancel. 14th century font with shallow window tracery on bowl and shaft, banner stave locker at north west corner, and simple old benches with carved moulding surrounding them and poppy heads. Modern roofs. The base of old screen remains, all grained and varnished.
