Yaxham, Saint Peter Church, NR19-1RQ.



Yaxham, Saint Peter Church, As I have said a few times now. One of 125 round towered churches still surviving in Norfolk. This one has a fortification or battlement on the top, on one side of the tower there are fillets including conglomerate stones which join the tower to the nave, this a Saxon feature. The Northwest corner of the nave is constructed with carrstone on the quoin. The porch is around 1390, the chancel windows are 19th century, a vast difference in ages. The original Saxon door is shown some 20 feet up, its door taken possibly from another church front. A ladder or rope ladder was needed for its access. There are 6 bells. There used to be five bells, but a treble was added in 1957, the oldest is dated 1625 and was made by John Draper. Another John restored and rehung these bells, it was John Taylor & Co of Loughborough. The nave pews came from All Saints church King's Lynn. There is a wall painting of Saint Christopher. Hes carrying the infant Christ. The font is of c.1430.
