Notes: The parish church of St. Stephen's is now a large, late-Gothic building with splendid hammer beam roof, tall aisles, and clerestory dating to the late 15th century. Its foundation dates to charters confirmed by Henry II between 1096 when the cathedral was founded to 1135. It was probably one of the 15 churches listed in the Doomsday book (1086) and one of the 60 churches of the city known in 1300. The oldest parts, tower base and southern doorway, of the present church date to the mid 14th century. See brasses, in particular a woman about 1410 with two small pilgrims (with staves) saying their beads(rosary) at her feet. Margery Kempe speaks of visiting St. Stephen's when in Norwich.
