This small church, now in the care of the Norfolk Churches Trust,dates from the medieval era. Although there is some dispute as to the dates which can be attributed to its architecture, it is agreed that both the rustic arch braced roof and the clerestory were built in the 15th century (when the church underwent a major restoration). Inside a St Christopher wall painting was discovered in 1988. Only one stained glass window remains in the church. This portrays a delightful 15th century feathered angel playing a stringed instrument (probably a violin) with a bow.
Here we see a beautiful 15th century angel playing a stringed instrument (probably a violin) with a bow. It is very much in the style of the Norwich school and as such the angel wears a feathered suit, which is how angels would have been depicted in the Mystery Plays. The result is delightful.For a closer view click
