Surlingham St Mary Church is an attractive ancient building with a round tower set on the edge of a nature reserve. The building combines early medieval flintwork with locally-made eighteenth-century brick, creating a light and spacious interior with many interesting features. It is open to visitors daily between 9.30am and 4.30pm.
Further along Church Lane you will find the ruins of St. Saviour's church, set in a peaceful churchyard managed for the benefit of abundant local wildlife. For safety reasons please do not enter the fenced area around the ruins.
