There was once a large estuary here, the meeting place of the Waveney, Bure and Yare rivers. The church's once coastal location may explain the prominence of the tower as a navigational landmark for sailors. An extensive restoration was undertaken in the 1870s and the chancel was rebuilt. Approach the altar to get a closer look at the fragment of 15th Century glass above it depicting St Christopher and the Christ Child, spot the eel beneath his feet.
