Norfolk Church Tours 2022

The final tour of the  season took place on July 17. 

Look out for the 2023 programme of Norfolk Church Tours. Details will be published early in the New Year.

The last tour on Sunday, July 17  to Southburgh, Woodrising, Cranworth and Shipdham also coincided with the 80th birthday of one of the guides, Richard Barham. He has been involved for the past 25 years or more alongside the Society’s secretary, ‘Lyn Stilgoe, assisted by Michael Pollitt. A special fruit cake was cut at Cranworth Church, which had been baked by his wife Pauline, for the occasion and was much enjoyed by all present.
