Norfolk is famous for its flint-built churches, and for the flush-work that spreads patterns across the church walls. Here it adds interest to the porch of Blickling parish church.

The ornamentation of this church predates the Boleyn family residence at Blickling; we can look to the wool merchants for its funding. Blickling lies adjacent to Aylsham, the one-time capital of the wool industry in Norfolk.
