Visited this serene village church as part of a stop at Burnham Market on a short holiday in North Norfolk. Most of the church was restored in 1872, but many much earlier features survive. The tower dates from the early 14th century and is surmounted by a battlemented parapet of extremely rare carved scenes added about 1500. The porch, which was once two storied, is 15th century. The south doorway is 14th century with a chancel arch of similar date. A lovely and well kept church.

A beautiful country church in the lovely village of Happisburgh with a wonderful vicar who conducted a memorable wedding ceremony

We called here and found the church unattended but this didn't stop us from enjoying our visit. There are magnificent views from the tower but you need to notify the church in advance. The church is visible from the sea and quite a distance around. Built in the 15th century, there are brochures available when you visit giving information about the church and the grave of the shipwrecked sailors.

We joined the end of a morning service - everyone was so friendly and charming. We felt absolutely welcome.

For £2.00 per adult, the very arduous climb to the top of this church tower is very rewarding and is highly recommended. It`s so high that it looks down onto the lighthouse nearby. On a clear day, you can apparently see for 20 miles. If you are in the area and like a challenge, then vist this lovely church.
