St Peter And St Pauls Church

Hob Uid: 1098885
Location :
Norfolk
Great Yarmouth
Burgh Castle
Grid Ref : TG4764504970
Summary : The church is in an isolated position to the west of the present village, and has a round west tower. It is built of flint, free stone, brick including much Roman tile, ironbound conglomerate with a slate roof. The round tower base is Saxo-Norman; the east and west nave walls may also remain from this period. The church was remodelled in the Perpendicular style. Alterations were made to the tower top and the south porch in the late 17th century. The church was restored between 1847 and 1858 following 18th century alterations involving a new north aisle, south porch and vestry. A later visit to the church in 1999, when the tower was clad in scaffolding, revealed that the mouldings for the brick bell openings suggest a later date than the 13th century. Possibly the tower was raised at the same date as the nave roof was heightened, around 1387. The flintwork in the tower is knapped throughout, suggesting a 14th century date at the earliest.
