Spixworth, Saint Peter Church,


Spixworth, Saint Peter church, an odd looking church, un-similar to any in Norfolk. built in 1160 by the Bardolfe family, the church originally had a round tower, this collapsed in 1804, but as the damage did not warrant complete reconstruction it was merely encased by a square tower. The church has a 12th century font, though the cover is new and was given by the family of Camilla Chittock and her daughter Janet, they both died in 1967. Spixworth, Saint Peter church, square tower at the south-west angle, 2 bells, nave with south aisle but no clerestory, chancel and north porch. The walls of this church are mainly of the Decorated period, but some perpendicular windows have been inserted. The tower fell in 1804, when the present one was built. There is a fine marble monument with recumbent effigies to William Peck and his wife dated 1634. There are also mural tablets to the Longe and Howes families and one to General Charles Leigh. There are some brasses to these and other families. The ancient rood screen has been restored. The Norman font is of interest.
