St Andrew, Honingham

A lovely, well-kept church that is definitely worth navigating to off the busy A47. Dating from the 14th century, it was extensively restored during the 19th century and features several windows by William George Taylor of Taylor & O'Connor, London. The firm was started by Taylor's father, Michael O’Conner, a pupil of Willement who collaborated with prominent architects Augustus Pugin and William Butterfield.

I rather liked the charm of the old fashioned light posts set amongst the pews and I imagine, when lit, they create quite an atmosphere.  The pew ends also have some interesting carvings. I particularly liked the sweet little acorn nestled amongst the leaves.
