Saint Michael parish church
The parish church of Saint Michael was once much larger than it is today. On the south side of the building the low aisle has been demolished, and the clerestory filled in. The church's most notable feature is its collection of medieval and continental glass brought here from Catton Hall, near Norwich, in the 1950s.
