Brisley St Bartholomew Norfolk Stained Glass

A medieval parish church, probably on the site of an earlier Saxon building, but mostly of 14th and 15th century date. The church contains good examples of 14th century wall paintings, and an unusual crypt underneath the chancel which is said to have been used to house prisoners being taken to trial in Norwich in the 18th and 19th centuries. There are some fine box pews. The church was restored in the 1980s.
