Church of St Mary, Mattishall Lane, North Tuddenham - Breckland

Unusually large parish church, medieval and later, with medieval rood screen with polychrome decoration and painted figures; stained glass (medieval, but salvaged from elsewhere in the C19), and C19 polychrome decoration to the interior generally. Rainwater penetration and poor ground drainage are causing damp conditions which threaten these historic features. Progressive deterioration and cracking is also occurring to the facework and buttresses of the tower. An application for a National Lottery Heritage Fund Grants for Places of Worship grant in 2017 was unsuccessful.
