This is a charming church in the small village of Anmer. When the main features of this church were built, the great family of Calthorp were Lords of the Manor. The South Chapel was built onto the church by Sir Oliver Calthrop in the 14th century. The name of Calthrop is frequently repeated in the list of patrons until Anmer passed to the Coldham family in 1678. Now the parish of about 1400 acres is part of the Royal Estate.
On entering this church one is reminded of Queen Mary who had a strong personal interest in it and gave some of the furnishings to beautify it, including a Florentine embroidered altar cloth.
A hidden gem of a church, situated next door to the Ingoldisthorpe VA Church of England Primary School.
The church is in the heart of the small village, when approaching down the hill (yes there are hills in Norfolk!) from Dersingham you are met with a wonderful view of the church.back to home page
