Laringasett was the name given in the Domesday Book in 1086 and it was then that the round tower of the church was built. Round towers are common in Norfolk as it was easier to build a tower of that shape with local pebbles. The existing church was added to the tower in 1234 and to this period also belongs the bowl of the Purbeck marble font. The chancel continuous with the nave was an unusual feature at this time and the plan of the church has remained the same to this day. The stained glass windows are mainly nineteenth century, and there are windows by Chas. E Kemp, the great master of Victorian glass, and these are well worth seeing. The window above the reading desk on the south side of the chancel contains panels of old glass which belong to the fifteenth century. This window was reassembled and installed here in 1958 by Lady Cozens-Hardy.
