Takely - Holy Trinity
This church is Grade I listed. Although there are some features from the 11th century, in the main it consists of a 13th century chancel, 14th century nave and south aisle, and the tower and south porch are 15th century The church was restored during the 19th century. Inside, there is a modern rood screen, complete with rood. In medieval times, rood screens (which separated the public area of the church from the ceremonial altar) were surmounted by a large crucifix, known as the rood. These were a focus for worship, especially during the Easter period. For example, during Lent the rood would be veiled, to be revealed on Palm Sunday. During the reformation all the medieval roods in the UK were destroyed. The rood screen inside Holy Trinity was installed in 1910.
