Metton

Metton is a small hamlet.

This church is also dedicated to St Andrew.  The square unbuttressed west tower of the early 14th century has an unusual feature in the passage underneath it at ground level giving access to the burial yard at the rear. The pre-Victorian organ has a Grecian style encasement.  Small, oval stained-glass panels from Belgium adorn the east window.  A constable’s truncheon is attached to the wall. The churchyard is still used for burials and the interment of ashes.

The congregation is drawn from the local villages, and in the winter is enlarged when the congregation of Felbrigg join us when their church is too difficult to reach because of the muddiness of the fields around the church.
