Plans for alterations to the east end of Hempstead by Holt church

Comprises plan, sections and elevations for suggested alterations to the east end of the church, architect John Page of Fakenham, scale 1 inch: 4 feet, 1920; plan, sections and elevations of proposed new sanctuary, architect Cecil Upcher, scale 1/8th inch: 1 foot, 1928.
Following the First World War, money was raised (probably originally as a war memorial) to improve the east end of the church, the chancel having been removed at some point between 1831 and 1870. Most of the money came from Sir Alfred Jodrell of Letheringsett, but the parishioners objected to the rood screen which was included in the plans drawn up in 1920. Eventually, Jodrell suggested that a romanesque thatched apse should be added to the church, and that it should be bow shaped to accommodate the memorial window which had been inserted at the east end during the 1870s restoration of the church. Plans were accordingly drawn up by the architect, Cecil Upcher.
