Norfolk is the area with the highest concentration of medieval churches worldwide.
Once, there were over 1.000 churches, and
it was said that you could always see the
next church tower from the one you just were at. Today, about 650 are still left.
Considering this fact, it probably comes as no surprise that you will also find most Round Tower Churches worldwide in this English County. Due to this large number, I have divided Norfolk into six sections you will find below.
How to use the map
The map shows the locations of all the Round Tower Churches in Norfolk. There are 133 entries for this county altogether, 123 existing church buildings, some of which are no longer in use as a parish church, but are in the care of different trusts. Some got a new lease of life, for example as an artists studio or the office of an internet book-seller. 10 of the churches are in ruins. On the map, you see the existing buildings marked with red circles, and the ruins with the black ruin symbol. You can click on each symbol to see a preview photo of each church.
