Parts of the church of St. Mary Magdalene date back to Norman times. Originally only half the length and apsidal in its eastern end, as indicated by the internal arcade. The church was doubled in length in the 13th or 14th century. On the east wall survives two fine examples of consecration crosses. In 1977 six silver Anglo-Saxon brooches from the 9th century were discovered in the churchyard and are now in the British Museum. Nearby is the ancient gatehouse of the Augustinian Pentney Abbey, the largest in the county of Norfolk.
