The parish church of St Clement, Outwell is worth an explore. The present building was started in the late 12th or early 13th century, and was expanded in the 14th and 15th centuries when the roof of the nave was raised and the extraordinary pairs of “demons” and apostles, with a procession of acolytes and flights of angels above, were carved and installed.
