St. Helen's Church Ranworth stands in a commanding position overlooking the River Bure. Panoramic views of the Norfolk Broads can be experienced from the top of its tower. The mainly fourteenth and fifteenth century building contains three treasures of international significance. The painted rood screen, cantor's desk and the Ranworth Antiphoner (illuminated liturgical book) date from the fifteenth century. The rood screen is one of the finest examples in East Anglia. The Antiphoner, probably intended for display as much as liturgical use, is the only example in England to have returned to its pre-Reformation church. The cantor's desk remains in weekly use as a lectern.
