All Saints is a small and stunning church, and is full of historic interest. Most of the church building dates to the mid14th century, and is perhaps best known for its compelling collection of Norwich School stained glass. Dating to the late medieval period, the richly coloured and detailed glass is fascinating, with beautiful angel musicians, saints and five Annunciation scenes.
All Saints has been described as “super…one of the most interesting small churches I have come across in this part of Norfolk” (www.norfolkchurches.co.uk
All Saints churchyard has several of the Norfolk churchyard-dependent species, blooming alongside other lovely wildflowers, including lady’s bedstraw, meadow saxifrage, ox eye daisy, germander speedwell, meadow and bulbous buttercup and hoary plantain.
Unimproved grassland and semi-improved grassland.
