life and death

St George, South Acre, Norfolk

 

Detail of the Barkham memorial, by John and Matthias Christmas, 1634.

 

Nearby Castle Acre is more famous, but the church of St George at South Acre is both beautiful and interesting. The most famous feature is the huge alabaster table monument to Sir Edward Barkham and his wife, from the 1630s.

 

The church has brick floors, brasses, medieval glass and bench ends, and is full of pale, ancient light. What more could you want?
