Church was locked and the outside looked like a bomb site, not sure if anyone is looking after it anymore.

I had driven past this tiny Chapel many times and thought it was probably a Methodist or Baptist chapel, until one day I came along the road opposite having driven through the ford.
I was able to read the sign which indicates that the Church is dedicated to the Orthodox wing of Christianity. I went inside, (one of the nicest things about Norfolk churches is that they are invariably open during the day, providing a vast range of places for quiet reflection and prayer), this tiny church is wonderful.
The Church of the Holy Transfiguration is even more beautiful inside than it is outside. It is incredible that in a tiny parish like the Walsinghams, so branches of Christianity seem to be represented and furthermore, the churches are active and well loved. Do include this gem on your list when you visit this most holy and beautiful of places. Enjoy the photos.

This is just one of the Orthodox chapels in the village, this one is not open all the time but there is another in the Anglican shrine which is open and in regular use. A fantastic place to visit

Some way away from the village and not easy to find. It is opposite the village green. It is small but interesting how the outside looks so English and the inside so Russian. Worth a visit to see something very different.

Impressive sites which were informative and interesting. Gradually pieced together a picture of collective worship.

I like to visit churches and I do try and go when a service is on as I think that you can experience the place at its best. Well, on Sunday mornings they have a service here from around 10.30am to around 12.00. I say around these times because the service does not appear to have a start and end. It very roughly follows an Anglican/RC mass and is given in English for the most part. Around 3 priests take the service and a small choir sings, almost the entire event is sung or intoned by the priests/choir with little of no breaks between singing. It is a rather amazing experience and nothing like a western church. People arrive and leave at different times during the service. As an outsider you can only stand watch and listen although they do let you kiss the cross held by the priest. The congregation are polite but not over friendly though. It has a timeless feel about it and is highly recommended.

This is a hidden gem. Masquerading behind a standard Norfolk flint structure which once was a Methodist church, Tardis–like upon entry it opens out into a Byzantine interior. I went on a Sunday and stayed for their main weekly Sunday service (Holy Liturgy). The singing from the small choir was in English but with obviously Russian harmonies. It was an indescribable experience, but the service, lasting over an hour, swiftly passed by and in no time I was drinking coffee and eating from a buffet provided freely from the parish room at the back. The interior is decorated with many icons and upon looking at the website, a fulsome description of each is provided. I returned the following day to pick up a post card, and the silence is heavy with the presence of prayer as though the walls were soaked in the patina of holy things. I'll be going back.
