A delighful round tower Norman church

Delightful, secluded flint church of Norman origins, with a distinctive short round tower; very much in contrast to the soaring towers of neighbouring Salle and Cawston and the flamboyance of Booton, a nearby Trust church.

Large clear glass windows (some with Medieval stained glass) illuminate extravagantly carved benches in this church, which has lain almost untouched for over a century.

The north aisle was originally the nave and contains traces of 12th-century work.

Keyholder

If the access information for this church is listed as ‘Keyholder nearby’, this means that the key is kept by one of our invaluable volunteer 'keyholders', who usually live just a short walk from the church and can give visitors the key; sometimes this is a nearby hotel, pub, library, art gallery or other venue. You will find instructions explaining how to get the key when you arrive at the church.

Facilities

Due to the historic nature of our buildings, only a very small number of them have heating or running water meaning that they can be cold, and very rarely have toilet facilities. The lighting is usually operated via a 'push button' timer or a motion sensor. We do apologise for any inconvenience the lack of facilities may cause.
