Norfolk is a county full of the most beautiful churches and to help you find out more there’s a free quick reference guide being published.
Each year the Diocese of Norwich produces the guide of the churches in Norfolk and Waveney, containing useful information plus photos and website details.
Church development officer Caroline Rawlings said: “The booklet strives to show the beauty and variety of our wonderful historic (and modern) churches. The booklet allows churches to tell their story in their own words, many of which are fascinating - and this is just a fraction of what they have to offer. We hope you enjoy the booklet. We’ve brought in quite a few changes building on the success of previous years.”
The majority of Norfolk churches are medieval and local people have worshipped in them for centuries. Each one has a treasure to discover and a story to tell. Wherever you look in Norfolk and North-East Suffolk you’ll see a church tower, beckoning you across the wide open spaces of the countryside.
Our churches have a character all of their own. From tiny Saxon parish churches to the great Cathedral of Norwich there is so much to see and enjoy. Whether you’re in the Brecks, on the Broads, at the coast or in towns and villages – historic churches abound.
The booklet will be available in Tourist Information centres, popular Norfolk attractions and accommodation from the beginning of March. It is also available to view online: http://www.dioceseofnorwich.org/visiting/guides/
