Hob Uid: 514835
Location :
Norfolk
Broadland
Coltishall
Grid Ref : TG2617220430
Summary : Remains of probably Saxon round-towered church, now a mortuary chapel. The South aisle and South porch are 13th and 15th century. Only the chancel is roofed. Batcock, from a survey of the 1980's, dates the nave to the 11th century and the tower to the 12th century, although Hart argues that the features of the tower, particularly the single-splayed window, is Saxon in origin.
More information : Ruined church. C11, possibly pre-Conquest. Built of flint with dressings of Ferruginous Conglomerate. Pantiled roof over chancel and west tower of nave, south aisle, south porch, and south aisle chapel. Round tower, after nave at its west end. Tower incorporates tile and brick fragments. Simple western opening and single light belfry openings with rough semi-circular arches. Former nave west window, with double splayed reveals, blocked and incorporated into east wall of tower, window has brick voussoirs. Later tower arch inserted below. 2 bay nave, with north door with medieval stone quoins and C16 brick voussoirs. Listed Grade II*.

Listed as Saxon, the nave being earlier than the tower. (2)

The 11th century nave is the earliest part of the church. The tower was added in the 12th century, the chancel enlarged in the 13th century when a south chapel was also added. The south aisle was added in the 14th century and the south porch in the 15th century. (3)

The tower is listed as Saxon, the triangular window opening being the diagnostic feature. (3)
