Stained Glass of St Mary, Denton, Norfolk

panarama of St Mary Denton norfolkSt Mary’s is not the easiest church to find and once located it would be fair to say that externally it is not Norfolk’s most attractive church, however, inside it offers a range of both beautiful and interesting features. These start in its early 15th century porch which has an outstanding set of roof bosses and continue inside to its 14th century arcade and decorated 19th century chest. The highlight must be the East window which is an eclectic mix of stained glass some of which dates from the 15th century. Described by Birkin Haward as being “one of the most impressive collections of 16th / 17th fragments remaining in East Anglia”and by David King as being “the most exuberant and in some ways the most interesting”  patchwork of miscellaneous fragments   to be found in Norfolk, it is well worth investigating further
