8-10 September 2019
SPAB Norfolk are pleased to be returning to St Nicholas' Church in Feltwell for three days in September to continue with the repairs to the flint boundary wall. We have plenty of space for volunteers, so if you would like the chance to work alongside experts and carry out some hands-on repairs to a building at need, please sign up.
St Nicholas is in the care of the Churches Conservation Trust and Feltwell Historical and Archaeological Society. This working party is being run in partnership with Feltwell PCC as part of its project to repair and stablise the churchyard wall. We are also running a course on repairing flint walls at the church on 12 September - click here to join the waiting list.
Although oddly truncated since its chancel was demolished in 1862, St Nicholas is a picturesque treasure in its village setting on the edge of the Fens. Grade I listed and built in a mixture of flint, stone, brick and regionally distinctive gingerbread-coloured Carrstone. The collapsed remnants of its massive round tower speak of its Saxon origins, and contrast with the delicacy of the flushwork panels in the nave wall and its Tudor south porch. The church sits in an elevated position, behind its equally interesting flint and brick churchyard wall, which the village community is working with the SPAB and others, including students from the College of West Anglia, to stablise and repair.
As long as there is space on the event, we usually allow you to book for both yourself and a guest.
