Gresham Church, Norfolk

Another of Norfolk’s round-towered churches the tower this time, although almost certainly Anglo-Saxon in origin has been so heavily restored in the Victorian period as to be almost swamped.

There is no certain date for construction of the body of the church, but again the restorations in the 1850s and 1860s have hidden so much that it is difficult to discern anything that is not Victorian. The interior is similarly stark reflecting the Victorian love for ecclesiastical gloom.

One thing that keeps church aficionados coming to Gresham is its ancient font which shows the seven sacraments in great detail and has survived the attention of the Victorians as it was intended to be in the Middle Ages.
