The quality of stonework in Norfolk churches is a testament to the craftsmanship of stonemasons in centuries gone by. Marvel at the detail and creativity.

Thatched Churches

View All

There are just over one hundred thatched churches in Norfolk, about thirty in Suffolk and one in Lincolnshire. Thatch is a sustainable material, and reed and sedge cutting is part of the management of the Broads marshes.

Round Towers

View All

Of around 181 round tower churches in the UK, 126 are in Norfolk. Why are there so many here? No one really knows. Perhaps it is because round towers were easier to build with the local material, flint. Or maybe inspiration was taken from the abbey at Bury St Edmunds which had a rotunda chapel based on the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem and turrets on the radiating chapels. Enjoy these unusual churches - there are plenty to see!
