St Mary’s, WivetonOpen dawn to dusk.
Wiveton Church was entirely rebuilt during the C15 at the time when the port was most prosperous, and it is one of the most splendid buildings of the period in the district. Of the earlier church little remains. The tower, with its right-angle buttresses and with its lancet windows in the lower stages, represents all that is left of the earlier work, which was brought into line with the new building by the addition of a top belfry stage and parapet. The pinnacles at the corners, in the shape of urns, belong to the C17 or early C18. Wonderful interior, with beautiful slender columns, window tracery, rood screen with double entrance to rood stair, and piscina marking the former position of side altars. C19 restorations.
