Tilney Saint Lawrence Church.


Burial ground of a few of my ancestors. Tilney Saint Lawrence church, lives only a couple of miles from Tilney All Saints in Norfolk. Tilney Saint Lawrence Parish Church today is primarily a place for regular worship, as it has been for nearly nine hundred years.  A building of this age is also of great historic interest and value as it has been found to be one of the best of the many beautiful medieval churches in Norfolk, built of the stone known as 'Barnack Rag' from Northamptonshire. The churchyard contains a number of fine 17th and 18th century headstones, and the remains of an ancient preaching cross.  It is also said to contain the remains of HICKATHRIFT - a local 'giant' around whom many stories have grown.  The memorial for John Eaton (1718) in the churchyard reads: The worlds a city, full of crooked streets: Death is the Market Place, where all men meet. If Life were merchandise, that men could buy, Rich men would always live and poor men die. Also has it's Piscina and Sedilia, Font and lid. West tower, south porch, nave, north and south transepts, and chancel. The chancel transepts and spire were rebuilt a century ago. 14th century tower with early 14th century west doorway, a little old screen work and a tre-foiled piscina in chancel with its old credence shelf. The church has the Arms of James the I. Tilney Saint Lawrence church, square west tower with spire, 1 bell, nave, chancel, north and south transepts and south porch. Mainly Early English work with later insertions. South transept window has plate tracery and the chancel double lancet windows. The Organ was purchased from Watham Abbey in 1879. There is a fine piscina in the chancel.
