    Post St John the Baptist, Croxton - August 2019


    Hi all, I've been lurking on here on and off for almost a year and I've finally started to get out and about and do some explores.

    A recent long weekend away in Norfolk found me near this old church ruin.

    St John the Baptist possibly dates back to the 11th century. Upon the opening of a new church 'Christ Church' in Fulmodeston in 1882 it was abandoned. In March 1959 it became a grade II listed building.

    Thanks KJ much appreciated. It's a small wooded area, The church itself is not visible from the main road but walking up the track it soon becomes visible.
