All Saints, Old Buckenham by Matthew McDade

All Saints Church sits on the edge of a large village green. There is some evidence of Saxon and certainly early Norman features. It has an 11th century nave, a 15th century porch and a full height octagonal tower housing six bells (one of only six in Norfolk). The north aisle contains a fine Norman doorway, moved from a previous position in the church. The nave and chancel were recently fully re-thatched with local reed. The nave windows contain some important 15th century stained glass. The church also contains some delightful medieval pew-end carvings of a griffin, people in deep conversation where the pews are pushed together, and a lion with a scroll. The unusual collage-like stained glass in the nave was installed in the 1870s depicting the story of the Good Samaritan. Within the parish boundary are the remains and ruins of two castles and an Augustinian Priory.
