Benefice News  

On 31 July 2016 we welcomed Revd David Smith and his wife Revd Angela Smith to our Benefice. The Institution and Induction service was presided over by the Bishop of Norwich and the Archdeacon of Norfolk.

Church History

St Michael and All Angels is a fine old 14th Century Norfolk church with an historically important rood screen. This beautiful peaceful church is situated like many others away from the village, about 15 minutes walk from Barton Staithe. From Barton 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. 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. Literature about the screen is available at the church. A steep climb up the tower, by arrangement, rewards you with a magnificent view of the Norfolk coast from Trimingham to Yarmouth. Please make a cup of tea/ coffee if you so wish when you visit and sign the visitors book. We also have a toilet.
