Ketteringham St Peter


The Parish

The parish of Ketteringham lies in eastern Central Norfolk about 6 miles southwest of the city of Norwich and 3 miles northeast of the market town of Wymondham. Ketteringham is a rather scattered settlement with no clear defined village and dominated by the parkland of its hall. Ketteringham sits immediately south of the busy A11 road which links Norwich with Thetford and onwards to London. The parish is dominated by its hall and this gave the area a mixed farming regime with roughly half arable and pastoral with substantial proportions set to woodland and park. Nowadays arable farming predominates in this area. The parish is drained towards the northeast by a small tributary of the River Yare, this has been modified through the hall grounds to make for ornamental lakes etc. The Yare drains eastwards into the North Sea through the port of Great Yarmouth. Ketteringham is sited at around 50 metres above the sea and the land hereabouts is noticeably flat. Ketteringham parish was of a fairly typical size for this area of Norfolk, it covered just under 2,000 acres and supported a population of around 250 parishioners. In Domesday times the land was shared between one Roger Bigot and one Ranulf Peverel, the parish held 9 ploughs as well as small meadows.

The Church

St Peter's church lies within the grounds of Ketteringham Hall and is approached by a dead-end lane (Church Road). The building follows the standard design of chancel, nave and western tower and is largely built in the Early English style of the early 13th century. This makes it an early church for Norfolk which is dominated by the great Perpendicular period of the 14th/15th centuries. The building, however, has been much altered over the centuries, firstly the tower had to be rebuilt in the early 17th century and then the top was added in the late 19th. The whole building was extensively restored in 1837 and this altered much of the details. The main lane skirts the northern and western edges of the estate, Church road heads into the grounds and the church is open to visit. A set of wooden gates grants access and the site is fairly open and does not unduly restrict photography.
