All Saints Church, Burhnam Thorpe, Norfolk

Burnham Thorpe ChurchThe church retains many reminders of its early origins, including: its mainly Decorated chancel, its early 15th century tower & a 13th century four bay arcade. The church’s 19th century refurbishments include the replacement of the south aisle. 

Nelson was born in the rectory (his father was the rector here) and following his death the Admiralty gave the church its lectern which is made out of timbers from HMS Victory. The church also contains a large and impressive  brass dated 1420 in the  floor of the chancel commemorating Sir William Calthorpe.
