Ixworth Thorpe, All Saints

This tiny church stands on the edge of the hamlet of Ixworth Thorpe, a little back from the Ixworth to Thetford road.  

It has rendered walls and a thatched roof, wth a brick and weatherboard bellcote and a surprisingly impressive 15th-century brick porch.  

The church dates back to Norman times; its white-washed interior is simple but  remarkable for its glorious 15th-century carved bench ends, which include a mermaid, a harvester and various real and mythical animals, and are similar to those at Honington.

Evensong (according to the Book of Common Prayer) is held here on the fourth Sunday of each month.

Those who would like to visit the church should telephone 01359 231568 or 01359 230615 or email to arrange a visit.
