South Lopham, Saint Andrew's Church, I walked down this churches pathway after leaving my car parked outside, I dumped into an elderly man who said the church was open, what a nice guy. He was visiting a friend from the village and put me well at ease! I mentioned the majestic Norman tower of Saint Andrew's Church, it was so beautiful in full sunlight. It showed in all its glory, the many Norman arches along with buttresses, it looked very well built. Considering it was dating back to some 1100ad, it was still in good keep. It had much later adaptions to it, these dating around 14th or 15th century. Inside I encountered "Wyverns, Elephants and Poppies, all in wood carvings. Inside too, the church had decided to strip the plaster from walls where obviously damp had been. I rather liked this look. There was a memorial on the organ to Susan Bateman of 1878. A date that keeps showing in much of my life previous. South Lopham, Saint Andrew's Church, Nave with south aisle and porch, large square central tower with clock and 6 bells, and chancel. The central tower is a magnificent specimen of Norman architecture. The chancel rebuilt in 1370 and the nave in 1479. The south aisle is Decorated. The west window is a fine Perpendicular one with a transom dividing into two storeys.
