The 14th century Church is well known for the six perpendicular windows of its Nave (unspoilt by 19th century conservation work) and its unusual Tower with honeycomb-style windows. 

Two years of hard work by the Parochial Church Council, funding from The Heritage Lottery Fund and North Norfolk District Council have ensured the significant restoration and development of All Saints.

The list of recent repairs includes retiling of the Chancel, Nave and Vestry roofs, making good the parapets, and East Chancel and East Nave gables, re-leading the East Chancel window, overhauling the South Nave and South Chancel rainwater goods and repairing the Tower.  The Church has been developed as a community hub and now features a permanent exhibition on the village history, upgraded heating, a kitchen and toilets, and new video projection and sound systems.
