Upper Sheringham, All Saints Church.


Upper Sheringham All Saints Church is the original church for Upper Sheringham, is largely of 14th century date it has a fine south porch, there is also a font of that same date, with original beam for lifting the cover. There are both screen and rood loft with Green Men carvings, these 15th century. Of that same age are poppy heads and animal carved bench ends, there is also a visiting mermaid with legend, this unique in Norfolk. The church has a mausoleum. One unusual thing seen at All Saints Church is a Bressumer Beam, or Lintel, I have not yet seen another in any of the churches that I have visited in Norfolk. On walking into the church, look up. The beam is there, hand painted and in all its glory. With its west tower, south porch, nave and both north and south aisles and chancel, Upper Sheringham with its modern roofs, 14th century arcades and a nice 14th century font with traceried bowl and eight attached columns to shaft, with traceried panels between them and standing on two steps. There was formerly a large font cover, there is bracing above for this and a cambered tie beam to support its pulley. The three light window over the chancel arch is now blocked up. The 15th century square headed screen has 4'2" in front of it a braced bressumer with flat panelling between screen and bressumer. On the later stands the front parapet of an old rood loft. A few 15th century bench ends with grotesques, among then a woman in shroud, and a mermaid and an explanation for the latter. There is a beautiful memorial just outside of the door that is not a Commonwealth Grave, but worth the time of a look nonetheless. Remember before God with thanks giving the galliant crew of B24H 'Alfred' of the 392nd. BG. USAAF which crashed near this spot on 4th January 1944 whilst returning badly damaged from a mission to Kiel. In gratitude also to those who aided the survivors n the common cause of freedom.
