The medieval building (begun in 1459) has a distinctly Georgian atmosphere, although the old box-pews have been cut down to provide open benches. The furnishings reflect the wealth of its leading parishoners of that time, who were cloth merchants.
A west gallery was erected in 1802 to accommodate the organ (one of the earliest in a Norwich parish church) by George Pike England of London. The instrument was blessed by the Bishop of Norwich during Easter Week at an opening that included a performance of Handel's Messiah. At this stage, it comprised a single manual.
