Restored and reroofed circa 1860 by Henry Le Strange (1815-1862) developer of New Hunstanton.
The current pulpit is a memorial to Henry Styleman Le Strange.
The font is early Norman. It consists of a square bowl, roughly carved, supported by four corner shafts and a thicker central shaft. The design for the mosaic pavement surround, laid in the 1850's, was from one seen by Henry le Strange on a visit to Vienna.
The figures on the Chancel screen represent the eleven faithful apostles with St. Paul.
The tomb of Sir Roger Le Strange is in the east end of the north aisle. The tomb of Sir Henry Le Strange is in the north wall of the chancel with the Chantry chapel above.
