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.
To mark the Centenary of the First World War we have become part of a recently formed group - Neatishead, Irstead and Barton Turf Community Heritage Group and will be mounting an exhibition in all the village churches during ‘Open Churches Week’ starting 2nd August 2014. 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.
