Long Description:
Cut benchmark on St Marys church, Pulham St Mary. Buttress of church tower, south west angle. Part buried.

"Pulham St Mary is dominated by its grand, mostly Perpendicular church, this one set on a rise above the village street in a wide graveyard. There are similarities between (this and the neighbouring church at Pulham Market), but big differences too; St Mary's porch is much earlier than the rest of the two churches, and the tower here is rather more feminine, with its pretty pinnacles and large bell openings. And, of course, there is the most famous feature of either church, St Mary's gorgeous late 15th century porch, perhaps the best in Norfolk and the equal of many of Suffolk's finest. Tower and porch work together to create a sense of grandeur, but in fact this is not a huge church, and there is no aisle on the north side."
