|The best feature of All Saints is
the good collection of late 19th Century glass. The
chancel glows jewel-like beyond the grim screen, and the
work of William Warrington is as good as he usually is.
The figures of St John and St James are powerful, full of
Victorian High Church confidence.
Best of all, the decorative glass in the north aisle is perhaps the finest of its kind in Norfolk. Leaded patterns swirl around the jewels of colour, and dressed for Harvest Festival they looked at once serious and beautiful, a saving grace for this rather awkward but not uninteresting building.
