St Ethelbert Church, Thurton, Norfolk

The current church was built in the 12th century. Its simple floor plan is typical of a Norman church as are its corner stones (quoins) and arched doorways . One of the most outstanding features of the church is its collection of glass. Some  of this (like neighbouring Chedgrave & Langley) originated in Rouen in the 16th/17th century and following its importation by JC Hampp  was brought here by the Dowager Lady Beauchamp where it was installed by S C Yarrington, supplementing it with his own work  in the early 19th century . Additional glass includes examples of 15th century work and rare surviving windows produced by Robert Allen of Lowestoft.
