Tuttington, Saint Peter and Saint Paul Church.



Tuttington Saint Peter and Saint Paul Church, near Aylsham has a round tower, different in having a small spirelet, it has 1 bell, nave, chancel and south porch, The base of the tower is Norman and 13th century above. The rest of the church is mainly late Decorated and Perpendicular. There are some old carved bench ends, these include an Elephant, griffin and several that I think are Biblical characters. Many are playing musical instruments. There was a parochial chapel of Saint Botolph that stood a few hundred yards to the churches north it was erected in about 1200 and is now raised to the ground. Cautley wrote: west tower, south porch, nave and chancel. Round Norman tower and porch with parvise above. Modern roofs, Stuart table and plain 15th century font with Jacobean cover. Plain pulpit dated 1635 with hour glass stand on it. The feature of this church is the 15th century benches with unusual armrests and very interesting carvings on them. Among the subjects found, (elephant with howdah, The infanta of Castile), a dragon biting a mans hand, dairy maid with churn, animal (fox) eating a woman's food from her basket and a man with a tun. churchesofnorfolk by the Old Boi

The first reference to the Parish is in 1044 with the name spelt as Totington and Tutintine a little later. The name means the "tun" enclosure or homestead, of Tutta's peoples.
