Sheringham Saint Peter's Church.


Sheringham Saint Peter's Church, has Western turret, 3 bells, nave with aisles, chancel, and north and south porches, the south door has a niche and a small statue of Saint Peter placed inside. Built of red brick and flint with stone dressings, Messrs Saint Aubyn and Wadling of London were the architects.A bit like Hunstanton, Sheringham came about with the advent of the railway, both towns have lost their main lines, though Sheringham still keeps their line for a tourist attraction. Sheringham came about in 1887. This red brick /flint building cost just £8000 new, it had seating for around 700 people. It was added to in many years and in 1910, the choir and vestries were built. Further improvements were made in 1928, 1930 1931-2 and 1933.Arthur Mee, wrote: "Saint Peter's Church was built as late as the last century and was closing, and is big enough for the crowds flocking here in summer. Two angels guard the low oak screen, which has a border of shells and seaweed. The east window, a group of seven lancets, is a glow of colour with a great scene of the Ascension, the Disciples below. Western turret, 3 bells, nave with aisles, chancel, and north and south porches. This church was erected in 1897 and is built of red brick and flint with stone dressings. Messrs Saint Aubyn and Wadling of London were the architects. There was a chapel pf Saint Nicholas, but it has been converted into business premises. Evidence of its former use can still be seen. After the Reformation, Norfolk churches suffered greatly from the deliberate destruction of "Popish relics" (a campaign which Augustus Jessopp called The Great Pillage"). and also from neglect, changing taste and over-enthusiastic restoration. Therefore, very little survives of their rich and colourful medieval fittings and furnishings. This makes rare survivals particularly precious, like the screens at Ranworth, the Easter Sepulchre at Northwold, the roodloft at Sheringham, the "Dance of Death" at Sparham, and the painted rood at Ludham.
