Church of St Mary, Church Road, Elsing - Breckland

Parish church. Built by Sir Hugh Hastings between 1330 and 1347 replacing an earlier church of which a small fragment of walling survives in west wall of nave. West tower, exceptionally wide aisleless nave with north and south porches. High level masonry, roofs and rainwater goods failing. Work to south side was completed in 2014. The church applied for a National Lottery Heritage Fund Grants for Places of Worship grant in 2017 for the north side windows and drains, but was unsuccessful.
