All Saints Round Tower Church, Horsey, Norfolk – from Echoes of the Past

 Reblogged from Echoes of the Past:

Last year 2016, in January we visited several round tower churches on one day.  I have only post three of the churches, and as the weather here, on the east coast of the UK is not very nice, I have a nice little cache of churches to use up.  All Saints Church in Horsey, Norfolk, had been on my wish list for ages.  The church is tucked away down a leafy lane and we always seem to forget to visit, but it was on the list for this trip out.  Luckily the sun was shining and thank goodness the door was open.  The light poured in through the windows, and I had a lovely time capturing the age of this beautiful church.
