Thwaite All Saints

 

 

Thwaite All Saints is a medieval church standing on its own in the Norfolk fields, about a mile west of the Norwich-Cromer highway (A140) on the road to Aldborough. Services are held on three Sundays a month, and on Christmas Day. The Priest-in-carge is the Revd Paul Thomas, and the churchwardens are Lesley Hennessey and James Buchan. The church is open in daylight hours every day of the year. Everybody is welcome.

Thwaite All Saints 

The Pulpit dates to the reign of James 1 and its date, 1624, is seen plainly below the sounding board. That was a time when the sermon was a prominent part of every service. Restoration work was done on the pulpit in 1890.

 

Between the Nave or main body of the church and the Chancel are the remains of a Screen. In 1559, At the Reformation its top was sawn off so there would be no barrier between the people and the altar. The Screen has some fine medieval carpentry.
