St Andrew's Church is set in the centre of an attractive Georgian village. The chancel was demolished in the middle ages, so we are left with a cosy little church. visitors are confronted with an Elizabethan text on the north wall, which is one of the largest in Norfolk. It displays extracts from St Paul's letters to the Romans and Titus, the first letter of John and the Gospel of Matthew. The church was restored in the 1860s but there are plenty of older features to marvel at. Note the angels in the roof and the bench ends, all from the 16th century. One bench end is dated 1644, the height of the Reformation. Look out for the man playing a drum. The carving of a burning barrel refers to the name Brinton from 'bryning a tun' (barrel) and 'brin' (burnt).
