Cringleford Church St Peter's Norfolk

cringleford church NorfolkThis lovely little Norfolk church was established c950 and still retains three round headed windows from the Saxon period. Of particular interest is the window in the north chancel wall which is in a very low  position  leading to speculation that it is a leper’s window through which those afflicted could watch the service without entering the building itself.

Other interesting features include the 14th century tower and the 15th century Perpendicular font. The church also has a fine collection of stained glass which includes panels dating from the  15th century.
