Beautiful old church with Hammerhead beam ceiling containing 192 carved angels. These can be seen clearly in a mirrored trolley. There are some wonderful carvings at the pew ends. The Pedlar of Swaffham and his dog being amongst them.

This church is very old and was built when Swaffham was a very important wool town. One gets the impression it could seat the whole population of the town today. The nave has a very spectacular hammer beam roof. There is a large portable mirror...More

Hi, I would certainly think so. They have a very comprehensive web site which should give you all the information that you need at swaffhamparishchurch. Need to add org afterwards. Hope this helps. Grenville.
