St Mary's at Martham


Known by some on account of its size as the 'Cathedral of the Fleggs', St Mary's at Martham dominates the local landscape with a 98 foot tower.

The present church was started in 1377 and has a fine seven sacrament font. There is some 15th century glass in the east windows of the north and south aisles. Among the poppy head pews may be seen the Medieval green man.

The Victorians doubled the number of angels in the hammer beam roof, ten carry musical intruments and twelve have instruments of the passion.
