Tacolneston, All Saint's Church

Tacolneston, All Saints Church, NR16-1EF.


Tacolneston, All Saint's Church is a nice little church tucked slightly off the main road in this spread out village. Starting from the south porch with it's shield's of graffiti, to its, font, Jacobean fixtures and its Royal Coat of Arms of Charles I or Charles II over the tower wall inside, they denote a CR inscription. This church has lots of splendid fixtures. The church is quite lofty, and very spacious in look, the lack of a chancel arch making the church seem larger. There are signs that there was once a screen, but like so many, this has gone, only parts of it remain leaning up against the south inner wall. The flint and freestone dates back to the Black Death age, 1349 and this probably why the church is so remote from the rest of the village, once thatched, this church is now tiled. Tacolneston, All Saint's Church near Long Stratton, square west tower, 5 bells, nave with south aisle but no clerestory, chancel and south porch. All three periods of Gothic are exhibited in this church. The tower was rebuilt in 1509, when some windows were added. the base of the rood screen is ancient. A piscina in the chancel has a shelf. The pulpit is Jacobean. The font is of interest. There are memorials to the Knipe family from 1736, one to the Gobbett family, dated 1762, and some to the Warren family from 1824.
