SummaryEdit

Description
English: The church of All Saints - lych gate. The church of All Saints > 833319 - 833345 - 833358 was extensively restored during the 19th century because the building had become quite dilapidated. The south door with its wicket gate, however, dates from the 15th century > 833336 - 833339. A small carving at its top depicts a fox preaching to geese. The restored hammerbeam roof rests on corbels rescued from the old building > 833363 and there are a number of other medieval survivals, perhaps the most noteworthy being the carved bench ends with poppy heads such as the depictions of three passing vices (gluttony: a drunkard > 833381 - anger: man holding a knife > 833386 - sloth: a man praying the rosary but falling asleep > 833391 - all standing in the open jaws of hell), a mermaid, a chalice, a variety of animals, a ship in sail > 833373 and a post mill > 833378. Only the rood screen dado has survived but it is one of only a few examples depicting not the 12 apostles but Old Testament prophets with scrolls > 833349 - 833351 - 833353. The C15 font is carved with shields > 833360. Of interest are also a few small brasses, C17 ledger stones >833367 and a fragment of Elizabethan text on the west wall. The church is open every day. For more information see: http://www.norfolkchurches.co.uk/thornham/thornham.htm The model of a windmill > https://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/833404 in a glass display case at the west end of the south aisle shows the mill which once stood by the harbour until it was destroyed in 1929 in galeforce winds.
