The exterior of Terrington St Clement's Church presents a "grand and massive group, formed by its roof and pinnacles, and campanile, as viewed from the south-east...The extremely fine west front of the nave and aisles, the angle-turrets, and flying buttresses; the richly panelled porch; the length of the south aisle, clere-story, and embattled parapet, with the transept and chancel beyond; - rise up in a stately beauty from the flat scene which nature has stretched for miles around...In 'A Complete History of Norfolk', by Robert Morden, published in 1730, it is stated, that the church was built by Edmund Gonville, Rector in 1342, the founder of Gonville Hall, now Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge."

Text by the Rector of Diss C R Manning from the book 'The Fen and Marshland Churches'.
