Wilby All Saint's Church, One of the Quidenham Group of Parishes. Wilby All Saints Church, has square west tower, 5 bells, nave, chancel, and south porch. This church is mainly in the Decorated style, but much renovation took place in 1902. The nave was re-roofed at a lower pitch in 1872, as can be seen by the marks on the east side of the tower.
Wilby All Saints Church has one of the most complete Jacobean interiors in the country. With its quietly raised up octagonal font, its reading box, and displayed glove that was found in 1901 when works were on going. This is a church that has nooks and crannies galore. Wilby is joined to Hargham, a now redundant church nearby. West tower, south porch, nave and chancel. 14th century tower with quatrefoil sound holes, and a north door of the same date with ogee arch and finial. Inside the tower is a good ringing floor. Good 14th century font with pedimented tracery on bowl and battlemented top. This church is interesting, as retaining un-restored its early 17th arrangements in nave. There is a poor man's box on turned shaft which has three locks, one for the Rector and two for the Churchwardens which is very unusual, some crude benches, a fine three-decker pulpit, with back board and canopy complete which retains its old position 15 feet west of the chancel arch on the north side of the nave, so the sermon should be audible to all east of this are box pews. To complete the picture there are 17th century baluster rails and table. Modern roof, good east window, Saint Christopher on the north wall of nave and an excellent set of Charles I Arms.
