It is a splendid church built by the de Felbrigg family in the early 1400s in the grounds of Felbrigg Hall  when the estate was producing its own bricks to develop the main house.

 

The  box-pews were added during the reign of George lll.  Over many years elaborate marble monuments to the later family of the Hall – the Windhams were added. 

 

A small crypt was added underneath the nave of the Church to house the coffins of many members of the Windham family.

 

Side windows in the chancel have been blocked up to accommodate the wall monuments so the very good, five-light Perpendicular east window has been left without stained glass.

 

The tower has 1 single bell.  The Church underwent some refurbishment in  the 1960's and was provided with electricity at that time.  There is a plaque to commemorate both events.
