Hemblington – All Saints Church

The real highlights of this rural church are inside, a medieval wall painting, rood stairs and a spectacular font, so I’ll have to return when they’re able to open internally.

The church are busy praying for lots of people, seems like a pro-active congregation.

The round tower is the oldest part of the church, constructed in the twelfth century.

The bulk of the rest of the church was built in the early fourteenth century, although some dates from the twelfth and thirteenth centuries. There was a sensitive restoration that took place to the church in 1904 and a piscina and niche were discovered, although the wall paintings weren’t noticed until later on in the twentieth century.

The porchway which was added to the church in the early part of the sixteenth century.

Part of the churchyard has been turned into a wildlife garden. I’m looking forwards to going back when I can see the interior, this is a beautiful and remote church.
