Church of St Mary, Sporle with Palgrave - Breckland

Parish church, medieval and later. Flint with ashlar and some brick dressings. C13 to C14 west tower with angle buttresses and a rectangular stair projection to south east. Remains of a C15 parclose screen and a late medieval cyclical wall painting in south aisle. The building has been subject to heritage crime. The south aisle has been re-roofed but there remain concerns regarding the condition of the walls and the very important wallpaintings. The building and wallpaintings are being monitored.
