West Raynham Saint Margaret's Church (Ruin)


West Raynham Saint Margaret's Church, very close to two other churches, Saint Mary's and Saint Martin, Saint Margaret's now a ruin. 5 miles from the south-west of Fakenham, this church has long been dilapidated, Not much is there now, part of the west tower, part nave with three windows, two Perpendicular Period, one other, there is a modern alter there, and a modern carving of Saint Margaret with her pet in wood. There is a beautiful font, possibly 13th century. Pevsner found little to write about this former church, his major contribution in was in his North West and South Norfolk, book, and is. "Saint Margaret's In ruins and thickly clothed in ivy and elder. Had the tower a North doorway? That was it! I had thought on approaching this site that what I could see maybe 14th-15th century, I'm not an expert though.  Saint Margaret's fell into ruin from the 1720's when the roof lead was removed to help pay for the restoration of S. Mary's, East Raynham.
