small lancet above. Nave: chamfered string. Mid C12 south door of 3 orders
with nook-shafts. The 2 inner and middle orders have zigzag, the outer is

medieval ogee-headed niche under a gablet. Over the door is a 3-light
square-headed mullioned window. South chapel: moulded plinth, buttresses
with offsets. Two 3-light mullioned windows. Crenellated parapet
incorporating the coat of arms of the Estoft family flanked by herms.

Painted brocade pattern above. 2-bay arcade to south chapel of pointed
double-chamfered arches on an octagonal pier. Remains of a C12 chancel arch
of 3 orders now rebuilt so that the zigzag runs up on the lines of the

to nook-shafts beneath. C18 pulpit, with readers desk and sounding board,
all in raised and fielded panelling, reached by a short closed-string stair
with turned vase balusters-and heavy moulded handrail. Chancel: small
trefoil-headed piscina to south wall, squint to south chapel. The west
windows to north and south walls have been extended downwards to form low-
side windows. Nave roof: low-pitch on slightly cambered tie-beams with
central floral bosses; chancel roof has a pointed, panelled and bossed
timber vault. South chapel: this was remodelled in 1634/5 as the Estoft
family shrine. Tomb to Mary Moyser died 1633: her effigy lies on its side
above small effigies of her children and beneath a lengthy oval inscription
flanked by Corinthian columns: pediment with figures of Truth, Charity and
Justice. The walls are entirely lined with panelling: each of the 173
panels is painted with a coat of arms connected with the family.
