Halvergate: St Peter & St Paul
Acle: St Edmund King and Martyr
Cantley: St Margaret
Freethorpe: All Saints
All Saints Church is the smallest and probably the oldest church in the area. The round tower is probably Norman and 12th century and the Chancel was completed in 1299 AD. A famous Victorian architect, Anthony Salvin, designed the interior of the church in 1849 and was paid for by the Lord of the Manor.
The Vade-Walpole family, who were related to the first Prime Minister of Britain, were benefactors of the church. The Walpole pew is quite unique in a church as it has a Victorian cast iron fireplace and resembles a cosy sitting room. The window in this side pew shows the Vade-Walpole Coat of Arms
Limpenhoe: St Botolph
Reedham: St John the Baptist
Surrounded by marshland rich in bird and animal life, the church stands to the north east of the village. Reedham is one of the oldest recorded religious establishments in Norfolk – records show that a church, founded by Bishop Felix of Dunwich, has stood on this site since the 7th century. The north wall of the present building is thought to be the earliest existing part of the church, possibly built in around the 11th Century. Part of the wall is exposed showing a herring bone pattern of reused Roman tiles; the exterior of the church reuses grey stone blocks, almost certainly also Roman. Further archaeology is exploring where all this material came from; the stone matches that used at Brancaster Roman fort and it seems extremely likely there was once a large Roman structure here also.
Wickhampton: St Andrew
The church of St. Andrew was built around 1200 AD with some later additions. It is situated on the edge of the marshes in a popular area for walkers. Its Medieval Wall Paintings were rediscovered in the mid 19th century and it has been suggested that the murals could be placed as one of the best examples of 14th century wall paintings in England.
