This church building is often locked but a key is available nearby. There will be a notice in the church porch with details of where the key is held.St Mary's Church is charmingly unusual with its barn-like proportions. The round tower fell down in 1753 and the building was patched up with red brick. The 14th century nave and chancel underwent a thorough Victorian refurbishment, leaving huge Perpendicular-style windows abutting a shallow roof. Inside, a large set of James I royal arms, one of the best in Norfolk, breaks up the blank expanse of west wall. An octagonal 14th century font sits underneath, its eight carved figures having lost their heads long ago. With no village hall, the church was renovated in 1995 to encourage use by the community for various activities. The pews and choir stalls were removed and a wooden floor laid.
