    Default St Mary's church, Narford (Norfolk)


    St Mary's church was rarely used, and after some lead was stolen from the roof the building fell into disrepair. The church was extensively restored in Victorian times and the top of the tower largely rebuilt in 1857/58. Two panels which commemorate Caroline (d 1857), wife of Andrew Fountaine of Narford Hall can be seen incorporated into the traceried parapet high up on the tower. The pews were removed in a late 19th century restoration and never replaced. Like many medieval churches this one has a vault.
