About the Church:

St. Mathias is one of 124 Saxon round-tower churches in Norfolk.  Unusually for churches in this area, the font is very old, late Norman, when so many others were replaced in the 15th century

The 'Haddiscoe Hoard', the largest hoard of civil war coins found in Norfolk to date, was discovered on 17 July 2003 by a workman on a flood defence scheme.
