Church of St Mary, Lower Street, Gissing - South Norfolk

The west tower and nave of this church date from the C11. Characteristic Norman windows of that period survive, but the nave roof was replaced in the C15 with a double hammerbeam roof, all the more remarkable for its small scale and good state of survival. A Heritage Lottery Fund Grants for Places of Worship grant was awarded in 2015 for repairs to the masonry and roofs of the tower, north porch and chancel.
