Stoke Holy Cross, Holy Cross Church, West tower, south porch, nave and chancel. This is a severely restored church, so severely that the nice 15th century font has been discarded and stands outside under the tower. (Cautley's words in 1949, and the trouble is, its still there). Banner stave locker in tower, single framed scissor rafter roof, two old bench ends in sanctuary with cast arm rests and Hanoverian Arms. Messent wrote: Stoke Holy Cross nr Norwich, square west tower, 3 bells, nave, chancel and south porch. The walls of this church are mainly 14th century with some later insertions. The chancel is the earliest part, the east window consisting of three grouped lancets. There is a curious memorial on the external south wall of the nave to Rev Thomas Havers, who died in 1719. He was a skillful surgeon as well as a priest, and his instruments for operations are represented by carvings on the memorial. There are tablets in the chancel to the Mann and Shearing families, also a double piscina there. There are some fragments of ancient stained glass in the east window.
