A very warm day when I visited Stibbard All Saint's Church, a little hard to find at that time of the year, but once found I could have stayed all day. There is a very large car park beside a football pitch, cut down in size for youngsters to play, and lots of cool shade for my vehicle. Close to the River Wensum, in 1086s Doomsday Book lists it as a very small village with a church. The main body of the church is around 13th/14th centuries, and like so many churches of the area is constructed of Norfolk Flint. There are quite a few features left over, however there are also some additions from a 1950s refit that are to some regrettable. There is an ornately carved pulpit with a blue/gray colour added in that 1950s re-decoration, the font made from Derbyshire stone stands on fours round pillars. The Oak cover on that font in commemoration of a previous Rector and his wife, Revd and Mrs J.A. Appleton 1921-1940. Stibbard All Saint's Church, West tower, nave, north aisle and chancel. 14th century arcade and modern roof. Clerestory windows on north side only, now blocked by modern aisle roof. Some nice 15th century benches with poppy heads and figures on the arm rests. base of a simple coloured screen. Notice base of Eastern respond to aisle is higher than the others, and indicates a low stone screen to chapel. There is an arch-braced beam going across the nave, 31 in front of the chancel, ns this must have been the bressemer supporting the front of loft. There are fragments of 14th century glass in one chancel window.
