St Margaret, Sea Palling

The view of Sea Palling Church tower is one I have taken in many times over the years whilst walking along the top of the nearby sand dunes. On nearing the church, it seems to disappear mysteriously behind the houses before revealing itself again on rounding the final bend.  

The church has a 13th-century tower to which a top was added in the 15th century. Much of the building was subsequently restored in the 19th and 20th centuries although the south porch still bears the date of 1634. Survivors from the earlier period of the church’s history are the poppy head benches which date from the 15th century and the original 14th century hexagonal stone font.
