St Gregory's Church, Heckingham, Norfolk
- What's nearby
An entrance to remember
On its hillock above the River Chet stands this charming little Norman church, with its round tower surmounted by a later octagonal top. The magnificent south doorway, carved fantastically with Norman motifs, must surely have been the work of the same mason as at nearby St Mary's Church, Hales - another of our churches that also has a wonderfully carved entrance.
Parking available on lane next to church.
Disabled access information
There is a grassy slope up to the churchyard, and a grass path to the south door with a small step at the lintel of the porch and a step down into the church
