Shingham,St Botolph's Church, Nr  Beachamwell, A medieval parish church, which in no longer in use. The church dates from the 12th century, with alterations carried out in the 14th and 15th centuries. There is an excellent example of a Norman doorway with carved decoration.Shingham, near Barton Bendish has nave and chancel only, this small church rapidly falling to decay and only a galvanished iron roof to nave, has several points of interest. Not at all disabled friendly, I, myself having to climb through bushes outlining the boundary. The south doorway os Norman and is of zigzag design, this in three layers, looks beautiful. It formerly had two engaged shafts and four orders above. Inside, are early 16th century poppy headed benches, with arm rests, and mutilated grotesques and most unusual and interesting pierced and traceried backs. Modern roofs, a nice Jacobean pulpit, reading desk and alter rails, there is also a little arched recess in the north wall of the sanctuary which probably housed an Easter sepulchre. The bell dated 1738 hangs in a frame outside. Shingham,St Botolph's Church,
