Wroxham, Saint Mary Church, NR12-8SG.


Wroxham, Saint Mary Church, shares a list of only six similar churches in Norfolk to have a Norman doorway. This stained in blue dye maybe as late as the 19th century. The font is 1848, octagonal in shape and has 8 separate decorations on each of the bowls outside edges. The roof is 15th century, the windows by King's of Norwich were reglazed in 1896 and the pews installed by G.E. Hawes in 1894. Outside is a beautiful Mausoleum, its built by Anthony Salvin 1829, his first ecclesiastical building and is the resting place of Sigismund Trafford and many others. No doubt built in the 1860s when the head of the family became a Roman Catholic and the alter there erected. Wroxham, Saint Mary Church, West tower, south porch, nave south aisle and chancel. The Norman south doorway is very fine with three engaged and knopped shafts with carved caps having curious heads on them and an arch of seven orders. Dreadful arcades to aisles, a simple arch-braced roof to nave and modern fittings. The chancel has a slight "weep" to north. The 15th century tower has good sound holes.
