St Mary's at Haddiscoe on the Norfolk-Suffolk border is one of East Anglia's most bewitching roundtower churches. Parts of the structure are eleventh century - and much of the construction is fifteenth century, including the distinctively patterned battlements at the top of the tower.
In the main aisle, there are several memorials - couple with slightly macabre skull-like markings -
- and there's a remnant of a fourteenth century wall painting of St Christopher with baby Jesus.
Just a mile away there's another charming round tower church - St Matthias at Thorpe. It's also still in use and has a tower which is, in part, late Saxon ...
... and St Matthias has the rare bonus, for a church, of a thatched roof!
