Carlton-Rode (All Saints)
CARLTON-RODE (All Saints), a parish, in the union and hundred of Depwade, E. division of Norfolk, 5 miles (S. E. by E.) from Attleborough; containing 938 inhabitants. It is said to take its distinguishing appellation from its ancient lord, Walter de Rode, who lived in the reign of Henry III. The road from New Buckenham to Norwich runs through the parish, which comprises about 2600 acres. The living is a discharged rectory, valued in the king's books at £16, and in the gift of Sir R. J. Buxton, Bart.: the tithes' have been commuted for £921, and the glebe consists of about 49 acres, with an excellent glebe-house, which has been considerably improved by the Rev. Francis Bevan. The church is a handsome structure, chiefly in the later English style, and has a low embattled tower; the nave is lighted by clerestory windows, and is separated from the chancel by the remains of a well-executed carved screen, on which are painted, with gilding, representations of the Twelve Apostles. There is a place of worship for Particular Baptists. Here are the ruins of a free chapel dedicated to the Virgin Mary.
