Wonderful piece of Orthodox architecture. This unassuming little building in Walsingham conjures all the religious art of the Orthodox church with it's beautiful icons

The chapel was very small. However, the gardens are lovely and peaceful. It is very much a cottage style garden looked after by volunteers.

We visited the railway garden which is to the side of the church on a sunny afternoon in April. It was very cold that day but I can imagine this is a gorgeous place to linger on a hot summer's day. The church is very beautiful and contains several icons. They also sell small prayer cards and postcards. Anyone interested in iconography would find this a fascinating place. Entry is free and there is a prayerful atmosphere in this converted station house. You will not come across many former station buildings that have been converted into an Orthodox church, so this is definitely a place to visit.

This outpost of Eastern Orthodox worship combines Norfolk railway history with a very special space for prayer and reflection. It is complete with icons written by the founders of this chapel, and is soon to feature icon writing workshops which will bring even more new life to this wonderful place.

Perhaps it shouldn't be really after all Walsingham is and was for many years ( prior to Henry VIII ) of course a place of Pilgrimage. This interesting little Chapel gives you a look into a different faith and something to think about

Orthodox chapel in an old booking office of a railway station. Converted in 1967 into a chapel for Russian emigres from the 2nd WW Filled with icons. A cool quiet place ideal for contemplation as is their quaint quiet garden which is also open to the public in season. Well worth popping in

I wanted to show the grandchildren how an Orthodox Church is laid out and decorated, explaining about the split in the church to the older ones.

Whilst my daughter was in awe of the icons and atmosphere her children were less enthusiastic. Perhaps it was just too different for them. They managed the Anglican/Roman Catholic differences and similarities but this was a step too far. Shame.
Well worth a visit for adults.
