According to the Domesday Book Watton had a church prior to 1086. The present church is thought to have been built on the same site, and is generally accepted to have been built between 1100 and 1135. St Mary’s Church, was originally dedicated to St Giles, but was rededicated to St Mary in the early C15. The church is of flint construction in the Norman and Gothic styles. In the 1840’s extensive building work was begun, widening the aisles to increase seating capacity from 260 to 480, which makes St Mary’s the only church in Norfolk that is wider than it is long.
One of the church’s most treasured possessions is the wooden poor box, which represents the figure of a priest on whose chest is inscribed the words ‘Remember the Poore 1639’. He is shown holding a bag with an opening at the top where money can be placed before passing into the box below.
