West Raynham is the largest village on the Raynham estate, the handsome estate village right at its heart. Unlike the other villages on the estate, however, it no longer has its own parish church. St Margaret was abandoned in the 18th century, and the living consolidated with that of West Raynham, where the church sits beside Raynham Hall. St Margaret must have been a fairly typical church for this part of Norfolk, a small north aisled church of the 14th and 15th centuries. There seems to have been a processional way beneath the tower. We passed this beauty on Route to West Raynham Airfield, couldnt say no to taking some shots, it was tranquil, Peaceful and utterly Beautiful, please enjoy,...
