St Margaret of Antioch’s, Cley-next-the-SeaOpen c.10am to dusk. Please ring 01263 740806 for wheelchair access.
The present church, featured in Pevsner and in Simon Jenkins' 1000 Best Churches, dates from the early part of the C14 and stands on the site of an earlier building, across the valley from Wiveton Church. In the Middle Ages the valley between the two was navigable water, used by coastal and foreign craft and bringing considerable wealth to the area. The south porch of the church with its carved stone heraldry, provides a beautiful entrance. Once inside one is aware of the almost cathedral-like proportions of the high nave and the vast west window and the cinquefoil windows of the clerestory flooding the interior with light.
