house chapel, Castle Acre
The 14th century chapel has a simple three-light window, an elaborate sedilium and, loveliest of all, surviving panels in the canopy of honour still painted with roses. There are traces of wall paintings, and, just for a moment, all the trappings of English Heritage fall away, and you can sense the eternal.
