St Martin’s Church Fincham

The church of St Martin in Fincham is a large, multi-period structure of limited architectural merit.

Its font, however, is one of the best Norman fonts in East Anglia. It is likely that the font originally came from the now lost Fincham church of St Michael.

The magnificent carvings on the font show biblical scenes including Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, the three Magi, the Nativity, and the Baptism of Christ.
