St Peter Mancroft, Norwich

  • Church Type:
  • Address: St Peter Mancroft, Norwich

Norwich is reputed to have more medieval churches than any other city north of the Alps and of these St Peter Mancroft is incomparably one of the finest. Restored when badly out of repair in the 15th century from gifts and legacies from wealthy citizens, merchants and craft guilds, it was consecrated in 1455. Although the church went through a troubled period during the Reformation this in the end provided its strength as power was placed in the parish churches and its parishioners. Both Pevsner and John Wesley were greatly impressed by the magnificence of the church.
