Get your free guide to exploring Norfolk’s churches
The Diocese of Norwich has just released the latest Exploring Norfolk Churches booklet. The free guide shows churches in Norfolk and Waveney that are open during weekdays as well as on Sundays.
The booklet details over 600 churches and contains descriptions of the churches, photos, location information, website details and other useful information such as whether local shops, other amenities and toilet facilities are available or nearby.
For High Kelling, for example, pictured above, the guide says:
All Saints, High Kelling
Open: Dawn to dusk
Originally All Saints was the chapel of Bramblewood Sanatorium at High Kelling, but it has served High Kelling for public worship since 1955. Possibly the smallest church in the Diocese-seating just 54 worshippers! In a delightful woodland setting.
Copies of the booklet are available at Tourist Information Centres, churches, museums, libraries and other places of interest across Norfolk and in parts of Suffolk, as well as on-line.
Church Development Officer Caroline Rawlings said:
“Norfolk has a great variety of churches from tiny Saxon parish churches to the great Norwich Cathedral. No matter where you are, whether in the Brecks, on the Broads or at the coast, you can’t go too far without finding a historic church.
“The Exploring Norfolk Churches booklet aims to give visitors an interesting and easy to use quick reference guide to explore the many wonderful and beautiful church buildings this county has to offer. The booklet has been running for nine years now and is always so warmly received by everyone.
"We hope that everyone will enjoy using the booklet and visiting the wonderful, diverse and historically important church buildings we have in this Diocese.”
The booklets are available now and are perfect for exploring Norfolk and Waveney over the Easter break and throughout the year, especially on Norfolk Day in July.
