GRESHAM Gresham is a small and pleasant rural village south west of Cromer. It has an interesting church with a very organised Victorian remodelled exterior. But once inside, you find it whitewashed and free of any decoration. The church used to be Anglo Catholic but was 'persuaded' to be Protestant by a Consistory Court in the 1940s. The church, with its 14th century chancel, is a magnet for church explorers, because it contains one of the best of the East Anglian seven sacrament fonts series. Needless to say it is also the ancestral home of the Gresham family, founders of Gresham's School and the Royal Exchange.
