The Queen's Diamond Jubilee 1897

    Newer Older

    St Nicholas, Potter Heigham, Norfolk

    A pretty and interesting church in Broadland. Unfortunately, out of the hundreds of churches in the Norfolk Broads, this is one of the very few which is kept locked. The churchwarden likes to know who is going into his church, I was told by a villager.

      What a topical post! I hope some of today's memorials will still be standing in 115 years' time!

      Maybe this is why we get so many comments in the visitors' book at our local church, expressing surprise at finding it open.

      Perhaps. But in East Anglia at least 70% of the churches are open every day, some of them 24/7. It is very unusual to find a rural church which is not open, especially in North Essex, South Cambridgeshire, East Suffolk and the Norfolk Broads.
