This church building is managed by Norwich Diocesan Churches Trust.

Perched on a hill overlooking its village, little All Saints’ Church has one of the earliest round towers in Norfolk, dating to the Saxon period. The upper stage is built of brown carstone (known as gingerbread stone in Norfolk) and has charming rough-hewn bell openings. The rest of the church was rebuilt in the 1870s. The vibrant east window depicts Christ the Saviour of the World, with a depiction of the Annunciation below it. Try to count the number of angels in the window – you are unlikely to get the same number on the second attempt!

This church is in the care of the Diocesan Churches Trust.
