This is a well preserved, thatched, round tower church, which had electricity and heating installed in 1999.Mautby itself dates back to before the Domesday book, which shows that there was a village,mill and 7 salt works (the sea was closer then). Now there are 120 inhabitants in a non village situation. By 1199 the Lordship had passed to the de Mauteby family who held it until James 1.Margaret was the daughter of John de Mauteby and married John Paston in 1440. Many of the famous Paston letters were written by her whilst living locally They are the 1st examples of family letter writing and give a good picture of life during the Wars of the Roses.They are now housed in the British Museum. She was buried in the south aisle to the right of the door, sadly neglected during 17th and 18th C and pulled down.The church therefore attracts many visitors from across the world because of the Pastons ,and if their surname is Mautby, Mawby etc.

We now have extensive information regarding the Womack family and their memorial stones.

Work has recently been completed to add a disabled toilet and kitchen  faciliity for church use.

Tower and roof repair work is currently taking place.

At the present time the South Trinity Broads Parish is in interregnum and we hope to appoint a new Priest-in-Charge in late Spring 2017.   For all enquiries concerning services or the arranging of marriages, funerals or baptisms please contact Mrs Alston (01493) 369326

Mautby has recently won an award for being one of the most welcoming churches in the Diocese of Norwich. Come and visit us when in Norfolk.
