In a thousand years of history more than a thousand churches were erected in Norfolk, and 250 of those have either been left redundant or survive in various stages of ruination. This book celebrates in photographs and prose Norfolk’s ruined, redundant, lost, forgotten and remote churches in a county-wide record. Laid out in gazetteer style with accompanying maps, the book encourages readers to explore this rich aspect of our heritage.
