The Norfolk Churches Trust exists in order to protect through financial aid and advice the many architecturally precious religious monuments of the county. Norfolk contains the greatest concentration of medieval churches in the world and were built as a result of the vast wealth created by wool. Of the 921 that were originally built, 659 remain: a testament to their skilful construction from flint – one of the most unforgiving materials, in a region devoid of freestone.

 

 

Not only are these beautiful, internationally important buildings but also they contain hundreds of medieval works of art and craftsmanship – painted screens, frescos and intricate carved woodwork and roofs. They punctuate the relatively flat Norfolk landscape with characteristic spire-less towers often round: a distinctive characteristic of the county. They are the visual and spiritual focus of their villages and have been since the timber churches of Saxon times.
