A fine old 14th Century Norfolk church with a historically important rood screen. This beautiful peaceful church is situated like many others away from the village, about 15 minutes walk from Barton Staithe.  We are open between the hours of 9 am and 5 pm.The well known Rood Screen has the complete Nine Orders of Angels and one of the other panels shows St Appollonia, the patron saint of dentists. A steep climb up the tower rewards you with a magnificent view of the Norfolk coast from Trimingham to Yarmouth. The church is close to the Norfolk Broads and from Barton Turf Staithe walk up the road, turn left at the village sign then take the second turn on the right for the Church; a walk of just over a mile.

If you have any information about Neatishead, Irstead or Barton Turf relating to the time before, during and after WW1 we would be most interested to hear from you.  Please visit our website.

ASHMANHAUGH: Women's World Day of Prayer
SERVICE AT ASHMANHAUGH Women's World Day of Prayer (International and Interdenominational) Women's World day of Prayer is an international interchurch organisation which enables us to hear the voices of women from a different part of the world each year, expressing their hopes and concerns before the rest of the world in prayer. On FRIDAY 6th MARCH 2OI5 AT 09.45 a service will be held at St. SWITHIN'S CHURCH ASHMANHAUGH. This year the service will use an Order of service written by the Christian women of THE BAHAMAS which has been translated into over 1000 different languages and dialects . The theme of the Service is taken from St John's Gospel Chapter 13 verses I – 17 JESUS SAID TO THEM, "DO YOU KNOW WHAT I HAVE DONE TO YOU?" And it challenges us to demonstrate the some radical unconditional love for others that Jesus shared when he washed the feet of his disciples. Everyone is welcome to attend the service - men and women, people of all ages Refreshments will be served afterwards. Do come ! We look forward to welcoming you. Everyone welcome ! Please come !
