Hindringham Church 2/2

At St.Martin’s church, Hindringham, everything is restored in a restrained 1870s manner, cleared of clutter and full of light - that vast Decorated east window helping that effect. The 15th century font is similar to that nearby at Wighton, with a Crucifixion, Instruments of the Passion and a Holy Trinity symbol along with heraldic shields and the east window includes a sequence of the martyrdom of St Martin, very much in the 1870s style.

It seems very English... somehow!
Brian Walbey: Indeed, you can't get much more English than North Norfolk, perhaps you will find out for yourself one day.
the suspended candle stand at the bottom right image is my favourite feature, Brian.
Brian Walbey: I wonder if it is ever used on special occasions.

That is a very impressive Dipping Pool, Brian.
Brian Walbey: I thought that when I saw it for real, again very posh for a simple country church.
