253 OLD CATTON St Margaret

This parish church is from another of Norwich's fine suburbs, St Margaret sits close to Catton Hall in the fine northern village of Old Catton, its another of Norfolk's 120+ round towered churches and from the south it looks like a quaint little church with nice porch and aisles and three window clerestory, but when you go round the back you see that this has been much extended through out the hundreds of years and from inside you see the real size of it.

The two stage 12th century round tower has a later octagonal belfry stage.
