St Nicholas, Potter HeighamOpen dawn to dusk .
The earliest surviving feature of St Nicolas church is the round tower, which dates from the C12 and has a C14 octagonal extension, one of the best preserved in the country. The church also has a rare and unusual octagonal brick font, the only brick font in Norfolk. Many other beautiful and interesting features can be found including wall paintings of The Seven Works of Mercy and other scenes dating from C13. High up above the rood screen, the original Rood Beam cuts across the Chancel Arch, here you can see the remains of painted figures of St Mary and St John on either side of the central cross, a very fine Christus figure carved in the Black Forest can also be seen here.
