St. Peter Mancroft Church, Norwich

St. Peter Mancroft Church, Norwich (must see)

St Peter Mancroft is a parish church in the Church of England. It is the largest church in Norwich and was built between 1430 and 1455. It stands on a slightly elevated position, next to the market place. St Peter Mancroft is a member of the Greater Churches Group. The present building was begun in 1430, on the site of an existing church, and consecrated in 1455.

St Peter Mancroft is an ambitious building, 180 feet long and ashlar faced with a tower at the west end. It has a Norman foundation dating from 1075, a 1463 font, a 1573 Flemish tapestry, medieval glass and a memorial to Thomas Browne, author of Religio Medici. The small lead-covered spire with flying buttresses was added by A.E. Street in 1896. In 1850 two L-shaped trenches accommodating a number of acoustic jars were discovered beneath the wooden floor on which the choir stalls had previously stood. The earthenware jars were built into its walls at intervals of about three feet, with the mouths facing into the trenches. St Peter Mancroft has a ring of fourteen Whitechapel bells in the western tower, eleven of which date from 1775 and the latest of which dates from 1997.
