A light-filled church with a mystery motif
The powder pink of St Peter's plaster walls is a backdrop to beautiful monuments in this remote fifteenth-century Norfolk church. White marble likenesses from the noble Palgrave family are full of character, as are the medieval figures in the brasses set in the floor. An enigmatic 'rose window' design lies on the centre aisle, illuminated by the blaze of light from the east window. Nobody knows when it was created, nor what it conceals.
