Aylmerton village situated near the North Norfolk coast. UK.
Aylmerton village lies in a valley sheltered from the Northern blasts by a hill wooded slopes and glorious views, which is now National Trust land. Among the oaks and the heather is an enclosure named Roman Camp and nearby are hollows called Shrieking pits where men of the Stone Age lived. It has been calculated that there were nearly 2000 of these pits before most of them were levelled by cultivation in the area.
Aylmerton church is on the hillside and is a 15th century building with a round tower over 700 years old. You can enter the priests room, which is over the porch via the original ironbound door in the nave. The church has some beautiful carvings, a traceried screen dating 1500 and four elaborate bench ends with poppy heads which were carved over 400 years ago.
The Lions Mouth is a pretty beauty spot along the main road popular with walkers and ramblers.
At the crossroads just beyond the village is a tall cross, harking back to the days when it was a halting place for pilgrims on their way to the shrine at Walsingham.
