The village of Narford has almost disappeared through various clearances over the centuries. The Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin stands a little way from the road and close to Narford Hall, the seat of the Fountaine family since the 17th century. Arrangements to view the church can be made with the Rector of the Nar Valley Group of Churches c/o The Rectory, Narborough. The church is plain inside but has an interesting double sedilla and Easter sepulchre. The church and churchyard are reached along the 'church way' to the west of Narford Hall park grounds. 

Morning Prayer (BCP) is said each Saturday at 8am from the Saturday after Easter to the end of September

 In 2015 and 2016 the Church of Narford was subject to criminal attack and the lead south and north aisle roofs were stolen. In 2016 we have managed to replace the south aisle roof covering with an alternative material and we hope that in 2017 we shall be able to complete the refurbishment of the north aisle. We have just learnt of an award of a grant of         £ 1,500 from the Music in Country Churches Charity which currently means we are some £3000 short of funding for the north aisle roof.

The vault in the north east corner has been restored this past year and we have to attract funding to restore the porch in 2017.

 If you have had any previous connection with, or a love of, St Mary The Virgin Church then we invite you to help the congregation to retain this building for future years.

 Donations may be sent to the Church Treasurer – Mrs Susan Nairn, The Rectory, Main Road, Narborough, PE32 1TE.

 Cheques should be made payable to Narborough w Narford PCC and marked for Narford Church.
