The Ruined St Mary's Church at Tivetshall is all that is left of a mainly 13th century Norfolk Church. The earliest of its five medieval construction phases is pre-1200 and could even be the one mentioned in the Domesday Book (1086). Sadly, the tower collapsed in 1947, believed due to the vibrations of a low-flying aircraft. The whole church had previously fallen into a state of decay over many years. Today it stands safely as a proud shell in the beautiful South Norfolk landscape just off Boudicca's (Boadicea's) Way. It retains its War Memorial which is honoured at the annual Remembrance Service, after repairs in 2001.
