St Lawrence’s, IngworthThis church is currently kept locked.
This church building is managed by Norwich Diocesan Churches Trust.St Lawrence's Church is full of character with red brick gables and a quaint thatched roof. The round Norman tower fell down in 1822, resulting in the thatched half cone you see today. Look up at the large mass dial carved into the wall of the porch. It is thought that these dials showed the time of the Mass and other services. The central hole would have contained a rod (gnomon) to cast a shadow. The Norman nave was rebuilt in the late 14th century. Inside, there are lots of interesting features such as a 15th century font which likely had seven sacrament carvings, 18th century box pews, a 15th century screen with a Jacobean top, an hour glass by the pulpit for timing sermons, and the Royal Arms of William III. This church is in the care of the Diocesan Churches Trust.
