Knapton, St Peter and St Paul, Norfolk, *

“The roof is a superb work of English carpentry…a 15th century roof was a liturgical theatre. The saints, apostles and angels would have ready meaning for medieval worshippers, as would the emblems and scrolls in their hands. The roof was a ‘cloud of witnesses.'”
