    Smile St Peters Church, Norfolk, April 15


    Having got back from holiday on Thursday, I had some free time this weekend so decided to head out towards Norfolk for a short photography trip.

    I canít find a lot of information about this church, but I believe it was originally constructed in the 15th century with a major refurbishment in around 1840.

    It is unclear when this site went out of use, but photo evidence suggests it was in use in the 1920ís and was listed in the 1950ís.

    These days the roof is gone, and any evidence of internal aisles are also missing. The tower still stands fairly intact, but this was damaged by a lightning strike in 2013 and as such there is some scaffold in place to protect against the potential for falling masonary.

    The church is now in the care of the Norfolk Historic Churches Trust.

    On to the pictures.


    Probably abandoned only in the last 50-60 years, the church is still fairly intact.


    Even the window frames are in pretty good condition.


    The tower still stands, even though it was struck by lightning 2 years ago.


    Internals. No evidence of use remains.


    Some of the structural detailing remains.


    Halo.


    Records suggest that the church underwent a major refurbishment in 1840, with some of the larger windows being replaced with smaller ones and the rest filled in.


    The extension to the right was probably part of these refurbishment works.


    Internals.


    Remains of window glass. I could see no evidence of stained glass.


    Looking at the church from the riverbank.


    Window through window.


    Internal panorama.

    Hope you like.
