- What's nearby
A delighful round tower Norman church
Delightful secluded flint church of Norman origins, with a distinctive short round tower; very much in contrast to the soaring towers of neighbouring Salle and Cawston and the flamboyance of Booton, a nearby Trust church. Large clear glass windows (some with medieval stained glass) illuminate extravagantly carved benches in this church, which has lain almost untouched for over a century. The north aisle was originally the nave and contains traces of twelfth-century work.
