North Norfolk church awarded repair grant
St Peter and St Paul's Church in Tuttington, near Aylsham, has been awarded a government grant to help fund crucial repair work.
The grant of over £16,000 from the government's culture recovery fund will be used to carry out essential survey work at the parish church, which has seen cracks and bulges in its masonry, roof and walls, along with failing internal timberwork.
Tuttington parish councillor Janet Lodge, who has been involved in fundraising work at the church, said that they had been been fundraising for years, and that the survey work would allow them to begin planning and costing the repairs themselves.
The church has already secured further grants for the latter stages of the work from the Round Tower Society and the Norfolk Churches Trust, with the community coming together to raise additional funds.
The Grade II listed church is a rare round-towered medieval church of which most examples only exist in Norfolk.
