Pevsner called St Mary's church "the most exciting C14th Decorated church in Norfolk." St Mary's church with its 175 foot tall tower and spire, sits on high ground above the village, and was often a landmark for mariners navigating The Wash. Someone called it " God's rocket to heaven". The original steeple was erected by John of Gaunt, Duke of Lancaster, the son of Edward III. The church is located very close to the Peddars Way.
