    Red face Church Of St Peter - November 2017


    Church Of St Peter


    A wet day travelling around norfolk earlier this year, having already explored one church nearby saw this was pretty close and decided for a quick look. Good shelter from the rain as well, maybe one day I shall go back and photograph the graves properly but for now I liked what I captured.

    Built around the 1500's and closed around the 1930's it has survived really well...in places, holes in the floor are noticeable but some are being covered up with grave stones, found this rather odd to say the least.

    On with the photos

















































    thanks for looking

    A shame about the church at least the floor tiles seem to have survived. Some of those gravestones are really old.
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.

    Very nice find, and reasonable considering how long it has been shut. They used to bury people in churches are you Shure the stones are not covering up old graves

    The gravestones used as floor was quite interesting, this same method was used in a functioning and open to the public church in Surrey, this site is not abandoned hence why I used its county. Looks like someone tried to revive the place post 1930. Great photos by the way.
