St Margaret

Built in 1796 on the site of an earlier medieval church by the first Lord Suffield.

Thorpe Market, Norfolk

Opening times

Our church is open every day during daylight hours.


Church Road
Thorpe Market
NR11 8UA

It was one of the first Gothic Revival buildings in Norfolk and contains the font, tombs and memorials from the earlier church and the records name incumbents from 1200. 

The pink walls, blue plaster ceiling and the two magnificent screens give a unique interior, most striking on a sunny day when the light streams through the geometrically patterned windows.

Most of the church furnishings date from the late 19th century. The building has attracted mixed comments over the years.

St Mary

Antingham, Norfolk

Nestled in the countryside, there is, sadly, no historical truth in the legend that the two churches of Antingham in one churchyard were built by two sisters. The pretty church of St Mary and the atmospheric ivy clad ruin of St Margaret.
