Norfolk: Letheringsett, Parish Church of St Andrew

O.S. TG 060389

The church has a round tower with a fourteenth-century top, decorated chancel, and nave and aisles with Perpendicular windows, but there was a thorough restoration in the 1870s by Butterfield, who added the south porch. 1 Two panels of medieval fragments were rearranged and installed in a south chancel window (sIII) in 1958 by G. King & Son, having previously been in 1820 in a small building called ‘The Hermitage’ in Letheringsett Hall gardens, and later in a summer house there. 2
